The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has liberated an area along the southwestern border with Iraq, close to the city of al-Bukamal, from the Daesh Takfiri terrorists on Monday.
Footage shows troops, artillery and tanks on maneuvers. One army unit planted a Syrian flag in the ground as a symbol of their victory.
According to military sources quoted in news agency SANA, government forces retook control of 1,800 square kilometers of desert territory surrounding Post 400 at the Iraqi border.
It is hoped that the operation will prevent Daesh from launching further attacks on al-Bukamal.
