Syrian Army targets last hotbeds of Daesh in al-Yarmouk

Tehran, After clearing the towns of Jilleen, Sahm al-Golan, and Haitt in the western countryside of Daraa province of terrorism following violent clashes with Daesh (ISIS), army units continued Friday their operations against terrorists in Nafi'a and al-Shajara.

A field commander told SANA's correspondent that terrorists in Jilleen had been holed up in the Syrian-Libyan Cattle Company building in the town and set up a defensive line there, which the army managed to break on Thursday, and this was followed by entering the town from several directions and defeating terrorists within a few hours.

The commander said that Daesh attempted to use car bombs and suicide bombers to hinder the army's progress, but they were dealt with before they could reach their targets, and the terrorists' defeat in the town led to a collapse in the ranks of terrorists in the nearby towns of Sahm al-Golan and Haitt.

The correspondent, touring a number of towns and villages liberated by the army during the past few hours, said that Daesh had converted houses, state establishments, and mosques into bases and field hospitals, including one base for the so-called White Helmets in Sahm al-Golan.
