The Syrian Army continues to attack the positions of Daesh terrorists located in eastern areas of the southwestern province of Suwayda, according to a Sputnik correspondent.
The government forces managed to block Daesh units by staging a series of artillery and air strikes on jihadist logistics routes between Suwayda and the al-Tanf border crossing near Iraq.
Earlier, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that as a result of the army's offensive, the government forces managed to establish control "over new areas in the depth of 40 km in the eastern countryside of Suwayda which led to enhancing the security in the area."
YPG commander Sipan Hemo underscored that the YPG has repeatedly demonstrated its competence in battling and defeating Daesh terrorists in many parts of Syria.
