Daraa, SANA – A military source said that eight villages and towns in al-Yarmouk basin area have been liberated following concentrated operations by Syrian Arab Army units in the far northwestern countryside of Daraa province, which resulted in killing many Daesh (ISIS) terrorists and destroying their hideouts.

The source told SANA on Saturday that army units established control over the villages and towns of Saisoun, al-Awam, Jumla, Ein Hamata, Abu Reqa, Abu Kherj, al-Nafi’a, and Sadd al-Nafi’a.

The source said the army’s operations in these areas left many terrorists dead, adding that the army seized large amounts of weapons and ammo, while engineering units are currently dismantling landmines and IEDs planted by terrorists in the area.

SANA’s correspondent in Daraa said that with these operations, the army is very close to ending terrorist presence in al-Yarmouk basin area and the entirety of Daraa countryside.
