PanARMENIAN.Net - The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale offensive in the Al-Safa region of southern Syria on Friday, November 16, after taking a brief hiatus this week due to the weather, Al-Masdar News reports.

Led by their 3rd Corps and 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army kicked off their attack on Friday by storming the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) defenses at the northern and northwestern axes of Al-Safa.
