BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) conducted a sweeping operation against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in the eastern countryside of the Al-Sweida Governorate this week.

According to a military report from Al-Sweida, the Syrian Arab Army identified and stormed an Islamic State hideout near the town of Kara in the Badiya Al-Sham region of southeast Syria.

The report said the Syrian Arab Army engaged the Islamic State in a brief battle at a cave near Kara before killing one fighter and arresting two others that were present in the area on Monday.

Video footage showing the aftermath of the operation was released by the Syrian Ministry of Defense on Monday:

Many Islamic State terrorists are still believed to be hiding in the caves of the Badiya Al-Sham region; this has prompted the Syrian Arab Army and their allies to step up their operations inside this area.

Previously, a captured Islamic State member told the Syrian Army that there is an estimated 200 terrorists still hiding out in the Al-Sweida countryside.

A source from the Syrian military said that the captured Islamic State fighter’s testimony was likely accurate given their previous attacks against the government forces in the Al-Sweida Governorate.

Thanks Robert , I thought I had seen the Yanks wearing them and as Daeshbags says easily available elsewhere. He should have died earlier as there are no more virgins left for these leaving it late to die.

Nice Score SAA. Only 197 remaining. Some will die due to infection,Illness, and the elements. Government should start a bounty program for communities near these areas.
