Syrian Army Destroys ISIS Fortifications, Makes Gains In Al-Safa

Support SouthFront

On November 8, a source in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told SouthFront that the army and its allies advanced more than 500 meters deep inside the heavily fortified area of al-Safa after heavy clashes with ISIS fighters.

Syrian pro-government sources said that heavy rocket launchers of the SAA’s 4th Division had played a key role in the attack by shelling the terrorist group fortifications in al-Safa. The 4th Division was deployed around the ISIS-held area a day earlier.


From its side, the ISIS-lined news agency, Amaq, claimed that the terrorists killed five Syrian soldiers during the clashes in al-Safa. However, pro-government activists said that only two officers of the SAA were killed.

Earlier, the SAA managed to free all the remaining al-Suwayda hostages from the hands of ISIS during a successful special operation in the eastern Homs countryside. This allowed the army and its allies to step up their military operation in al-Safa, as the area has become free of civilians.

good take no prisoners this time

Zionism = EVIL

Reports from Syria indicate that Russia is gearing up for a massive bombing campaign again. The headchoppers and their US masters are getting squeezed daily. Meanwhile in Yemen the Ansarollah have just routed a Saudi column on the outskirts of Hodeidah. The Zaidi Shia Ansarollah group’s flag reads as following: “God Is Great, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse on the Jews, Victory to Islam”

You should try to make an intelligent post ounce in a while Jens. :D
Daesh rats at Al Safa will no be exterminated because the hostages are free.
You know, because it would have been a PR problem.

About time that small spec of Syrian land was free of ISIS. Why is it not bombed 24/7? Have Putin call Trump for a MOAB or two. Would be good for them to work together on this one.

But every time SDF and US coalition attacks the ISIS E river pocket, Daesh increases in strength? LOL
