Syria in Last 24 Hours: Army Tightens Noose on ISIL in Sweida Desert

4 November 2018 14:54

The Damascus Army resumed its military operation in the Eastern desert of Sweida, tightening noose on the ISIL terrorists in Toloul al-Safa rugged terrains over the past 24 hours.

The army soldiers, backed up by artillery and missile units, resumed offensive operation in Toloul al-Safa and Qabr Sheikh Hossein in the Eastern desert of Sweida, and advanced almost one kilometer against ISIL in the depth of Toloul al-Safa.

Meantime, the Syrian army continued its military advances in other parts of Syria over the 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 units resumed their operation in the Eastern desert of Sweida, tightening noose on the ISIL terrorists in Toloul al-Safa rugged terrains on Saturday.

The army soldiers, backed up by artillery and missile units, resumed offensive operation in Toloul al-Safa and Qabr Sheikh Hossein in the Eastern desert of Sweida, and advanced almost one kilometer against ISIL in the depth of Toloul al-Safa.

The army further started fortifying the newly-captured positions, field sources said, adding that as Tolou al-Safa includes the rugged terrains, the government forces’ advance in the region has slowed down.

The army’s fresh operation came after the ISIL refused to surrender to the army and free the kidnapped people.

Deir Ezzur

A security commander of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) was gunned down by unknown attackers in Eastern Deir Ezzur on Saturday.

Commander of the SDF police, nom de guerre Arach, was killed after unidentified assailants opened fire at him on a road to Ziban al-Tiyanah region in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

The SDF kept its fighters on alert after the attack and sent more forces and military equipment to the scene.

In the meantime, unknown raiders targeted and killed 2 SDF fighters near al-Omar oilfield and injured several more.

Idlib

Terrorist groups sent more military hardware to Southeastern Idlib on Saturday in defiance of the terms of the Sochi Agreement that calls for a demilitarized zone.

Terrorist groups dispatched more arms and ammunition to Skeik, al-Taah and Jarjanaz in Southeastern Idlib to boost their defense-combat capabilities.

The terrorists’ move came after their attack on the Syrian Army near Abu al-Dhohour that caused the army’s artillery units to shell terrorists’ positions in the region.

In the meantime, a filed commander said that the terrorists’ attacks on the army prove that Turkey has failed to expel terrorists from the demilitarized zone.

The commander warned that the Sochi Agreement will not survive if the terrorists continue such attacks.

Hasaka-Raqqa

The Turkish troops continued targeting the positions of the Kurdish militia in several regions in Hasaka and Raqqa provinces on Saturday regardless of the deployment of the US army men at Syria-Turkey border.

The Turkish army targeted the positions of al-Sanadid fighters, affiliated to the Syrian Democratic Forces, in Northern Hasaka, including the village of Tal Jahan, injuring a gunman.

In the meantime, the Kurdish-language Hawar news reported that the Ankara forces targeted Tal Abyadh’s countryside in Raqqa province, injuring several people including two media activists.

Meanwhile, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the US army has deployed along the borderline between Syria and Turkey in a large region between the Tigris and the Euphrates Rivers and also in the town of Ein al-Arab (Kobani) in Northeastern Aleppo to prevent any military movement by the Turkish troops.

In the meantime, the Kurdish militias claimed that they carried out monitoring patrol across a region between Ein al-Arab in Northeastern Aleppo and the town of Tal Abyadh in Northern Raqqa after continued attacks of the Turkish forces at the Syrian towns and villages on the Eastern banks of the Euphrates River.
