The Syrian Army troops continued their rapid advances in the depth of Badiyeh (desert) of Sweida on Sunday and came close to the end of their anti-ISIL operation in the Southern province.
The army units managed to advance against ISIL in several flanks in the Eastern Badiyeh of Sweida, laying siege on ISIL in a small limited area of land where a tough battle is underway between terrorists and government forces.
In the meantime, a military source said that the army men, advancing in Badiyeh, will soon shake hand with their comrades that are operating in Qasr Shenvan region, adding that Eastern Badiyeh will be freed after the two groups of government forces reach each other.
The source further said that the army units have destroyed a number of ISIL’s bases in their operation in Badiyeh.
On Saturday, the government forces, backed up by the army’s artillery and missile units and aircraft, stormed ISIL in the Eastern Badiyeh of Sweida and pushed terrorists back from al-Zalaf Dam, Qala’a Qadimi, Toloul al-Qantara, Souh al-Na’ameh, Zahrat Rashed and Arz al-Kara’a.
Other units of the army managed to seize control over several areas in Tal Alam region in Badiyeh.
ISIL suffered heavy casualties and its military hardware sustained major damage in the attack.
