The source added that the operation has so far resulted in the liberation of about 100 square kilometers and establishing full control over Tal Assadi, Tal Jarin, Tal al-Rayahin and Bir al-Sabouni, after eliminating the last gatherings of ISIS in those areas.

Another field commander confirmed the elimination of the last terrorists’ gatherings in Beir al-Saboubn, Tal Jarin, Tal Riahi and Tal al-Asadi, pointing out that the operations continue towards Beir al-Sout to protect the advanced military points towards the Jordanian border.
