Daraa, SANA – Syrian Arab Army units continued carrying out concentrated operations targeting the remnants of Daesh (ISIS) in al-Yarmouk basin area in Daraa province.

SANA’s correspondent said army units are engaged in violent clashes with Daesh terrorists at the outskirts of al-Shajara town, and that they destroyed bases and car bombs for the terror organization, as well as dealing with suicide bombers that are trying to hinder the army’s advance.

The correspondent said the army has cut off the terrorists’ supply and movement routes, in addition to eliminating a number of terrorists including the “emir” of Daesh in al-Shajara, a terrorist nicknamed “Abu Walid al-Masri.”
