Syria in Last 24 Hours:
Army Repels Terrorists' Offensive in Sweida
Rasa - The Damascus Army warded off terrorists' attack in Eastern Sweida, inflicting major losses on the terrorists over the past 24 hours.

RNA - The Syrian Army engaged in tough battle with the ISIL terrorists in Al-Zolf Dam in Eastern Badiyeh (Desert) in Sweida, and managed to beat the terrorists back.

 

The ISIL suffered heavy casualties and its military hardware sustained major damage in the failed attack.

 

Meantime, the Syrian army continued its military advances in other parts of Syria over past 24 hours.

 

Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army's operations in provinces across Syria.

 

Sweida

 

The Syrian Army troops fended off ISIL's attack in Eastern Sweida, inflicting major losses on the terrorists on Saturday.

 

The army men engaged in tough battle with ISIL in Al-Zolf Dam in Eastern Badiyeh in Sweida, and managed to beat the terrorists back.

 

In the meantime, the army's artillery unit pounded ISIL's movements in the battlefield.

 

The ISIL suffered heavy casualties and its military hardware sustained major damage in the failed attack.

 

Field sources reported last month that the army sent a large convoy of military equipment to the Eastern desert of Sweida.

 

They added that the convoy which included several tanks, missile-launchers and vehicles equipped with heavy weapons was sent to Tal Sa'ad, the frontline of battle against the ISIL, through the village of al-Janineh in Northeastern Sweida.

 

Meantime, the Syrian army units engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL terrorists in Badiyeh region of Sweida province, including al-Harmieh region.

 

Also, the army's air force and artillery units pounded the ISIL positions in al-Kara'a, al-Habirieh, Kharbat al-Ambashi and al-Tamthouneh regions, inflicting tolls and damage on them.

 

Idlib

 

Three notorious terrorist commanders were killed in Idlib province as tensions and clashes among militants have intensified in Northern Syria.

 

Field sources in Idlib province reported that one of the senior commanders of the ISIL terrorist group named Abu al-Bara al-Lazeqani was assassinated by Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists in Sahl al-Rouj region, West of Idlib.

 

The sources also reiterated that after assassination of the ISIL commander by Tahrir al-Sham, clashes intensified between the two sides at a Tahrir al-Sham checkpoint in the town of Sarmin, Southeast of Idlib.

 

Meantime, the ISIL terrorists also shot dead Tahrir al-Sham Commander Abu Talheh in Saraqib city, Southeast of Idlib and they also injured another commander of the rival group.

 

A commander of Sultan Murad Brigade affiliated to the Free Syrian Army (FSA), namely Abu Ahmad Sansavi, was also gunned down by unknown assailants in the city of Dana.

 

Infighting among different terrrorist group has intensified as reports said the Syrian army plans to launch an assault on terrorists in Idlib province once its mission in the Southern province of Dara'a is accomplished.

 

Dara'a

 

The Syrian army continued military operations against the terrorists in Northern Dara'a, and seized control over vital regions.

 

According to Fars News Agancy, the army forces engaged in clashes with the terrorists South of the town of Ankhal in Northern Dara'a, retaking control of the village of Kharbat al-Saraya and an adjacent hill as well as al-Motawwaq hills.

 

Meantime, militants in the town of Jassim in Northwestern Dara'a agreed to deliver control of the region and surrender their arms and military equipment to the army soldiers.

 

Local sources also reported that the militants have agreed with rendering control of the strategic al-Hareh hill in Northwestern Dara'a near the Golan Heights in Quneitra province to the army troops, adding that residents of the town have called on the terrorist groups to leave.

 

A small number of towns and villages in Northern and Northwestern Dara'a are still under the terrorists' occupation now after the army's recent advance.

 

Hama-Deir Ezzur

 

The Syrian army discovered a large amount of weapons and ammunition, including US and Western-made arms, during cleansing operations against the ISIL and other terrorist groups in Deir Ezzur and Hama provinces.

 

The Syrian army units found an underground cache of weapons and ammunition of the ISIL during mop-up operations in the town of al-Hassarat in West of Albu Kamal region in Southeastern Deir Ezzur which included US and western-made mortars and RPGs, Grad missiles and satellite communication systems.

 

Also, the army forces in the town of Aqrab in Southwestern Hama found a hideout of terrorists which included a large number of weapons and ammunition as well as military equipment.

 

Meantime, field sources reported that the Syrian army troops found a large number of sniper guns made by the western countries, PKC machine-guns and different types of advanced military equipment.
