Syrian army troops have liberated yet another town in al-Yarmouk basin in the country’s southwestern province of Dara’a, further tightening the noose around the last remnants of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the area.
The official Syrian Arab News Agency, SANA, reported on Monday that government soldiers managed to fully liberate al-Shajarah town from the clutches of Daesh terrorists earlier in the day after intensive clashes.
It added that victorious troops entered the town from multiple directions following the offensive, which inflicted heavy damage and casualties on terrorists.
During the past week, army units established full control on the villages of Saisoun, al-Awwam, Ain Hamata, Abu Raqqa, Abu Kharj, al-Nafa’a and al-Nafa’a dam. Now, they are amid fierce battles with Daesh remnants in and around the Abdin village, the report added.
Meanwhile, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in a report that the Syrian troops were on the brink of seizing the last pocket of land still under the control of Daesh terrorists, adding that advancing government units had seized all but only three militant-held villages.
