A large number of reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) arrived in the Al-Sweida Governorate yesterday, a military source told Al-Masdar News.
According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army reinforcements arrived in the Badiya Al-Sham region, where the Islamic State (ISIS) currently maintains a large presence.
The source added the Syrian Arab Army reinforcements were from the 10th Division and Tiger Forces; they were previously deployed to the Daraa and Al-Quneitra Governorates.
Both the 10th Division and Tiger Forces reportedly arrived in the Badiya Al-Sham region with a large number of tanks and armored vehicles to take on the Islamic State terrorists.
At the same time, the Syrian and Russian air forces have been hammering the Islamic State in the Badiya Al-Sham region, targeting their whereabouts in the Kara area near the Safa Canyon.
The Syrian Army also launched a security operation in the Al-Lajat Plateau to clear the Islamic State’s sleeper cells inside the Daraa and Al-Sweida governorates.
A government source reported that at least 100 suspected militants were arrested during this large-scale Syrian Arab Army operation in the Al-Lajat region.
