TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army forces managed to advance more in the Southern province of Sweida on Wednesday, cutting off ISIL's supply lines from the US-run al-Tanf base in Southern Homs to Sweida.
The army forces managed to impose control over Tal Zarin and al-Mari'eiyeh region, deploying at the strategic al-Safa hills.
Field sources, meantime, reported that the army has captured a part of al-Safa hills. They further said that the army advanced almost 20 km in the depth of Syria's Badiyeh [desert], prevailing over ISIL's positions.
In the meantime the Arabic-language website of Sputnik reported that the army's recent advances in Badiyeh have cut off ISIL's supply lines from Sweida to the US army-run al-Tanf base.
Reports said earlier today that the army forces, backed up by artillery and missile units, advanced against ISIL in Rami Shabaki Sharihi region in Eastern Sweida, seizing control over al-Tamthouneh, Haviyeh al-Abed, Wadi al-Lahaf, Arz al-Zabiriyat, Rosoum al-Manatir, Wadi al-Sham and Ra'as al-Jamrah in Eastern, Northeastern and Southeastern Sweida.
Other units of the army engaged in fierce clashes with ISIL in al-Hossan and Arz al-Kara'a regions, repelling terrorists' attacks.
ISIL suffered heavy casualties in the failed attacks and retreated from the battlefield to evade more casualties.
