TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Syrian forces continued to make gains in their military campaign against Daesh terrorists in the Badiya region, inflicting losses on them.

They carried out a number of operations targeting Daesh hideouts in the northeastern part of Sweida province in the direction of the Badiya desert, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorist group, SANA news agency reported.

Later, the army managed to reach the Sheikh Hussein Tomb area in the province where they are establishing positions to continue advancing and end the presence of the terror group in nearby areas, the report added.

The Syrian forces had earlier surrounded Daesh in Badiya region and forced the terrorists to retreat.

The terror group has lost much of the areas it previously controlled in Syria and is now holding pockets of land in some desert regions.
