The Syrian army and popular forces stormed the ISIS terrorists’ fortified positions and their gathering in the Northern parts of Sweida province, inflicting heavy loss and damage on them, military sources said on Sunday.

The Syrian Army and popular forces in an abrupt attack surprised terrorists in Northeastern areas near the village of al-Qasr and managed to destroy several heavy machinegun-equipped vehicles of the militants, a military source in Sweida province said.

Before the weekend, the Syrian troops targeted a military vehicle carrying the ISIS militants Northeast of Sweida province, killing and wounding all on board.

The vehicle, equipped with heavy machineguns, was intercepted by the army in al-Qasr village and was destroyed in a precision strike which killed and injured all the terrorists inside.

Earlier this month, the Syrian army soldiers and their allies in National Defense Forces (NDF), tipped off by intelligence agents, stopped a vehicle laden with a large amount of ammunition and almost half a ton of TNT explosives on a road between Sweida and Dara'a province and seized its illegal cargo, military sources said.

Military sources said the seizure of the vehicle fully laden with rockets, mines and artillery shells and almost half a ton of TNT explosives was done on a remote road between two towns of Beka and Smad in Southern Sweida province near the Syrian-Jordanian border, as it was carrying the ammunition from the Dara'a for the militants lurking in the Syrian desert. "However the Syrian army forces and their allies successfully tracked and stopped it."

The sources added that the seized explosives were highly powerful, however the operation to seize the consignment went on smoothly without any significant incident, FNA reported.
