Sweeping operations | Five regime officers and soldiers injured in landmine explosion in Al-Suwaidaa desert
Al-Suwaidaa Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: A landmine exploded in a military vehicle near Tal Asady in Al-Suwaidaa countryside, as regime forces were sweeping the area and removing old unexploded ordnance. The explosion injured a regime soldier and four officers of the 15th Division (two colonels and two lieutenants).
It is worth noting that the regime-backed 15th Division and the Palestinian “Jaysh Al-Tahrir” supervise the sweeping operations and removing old ordnance in several areas from rural Al-Suwaidaa to Al-Karra’ area in the centre of the Syrian desert.
On October 11, regime forces started sweeping operations in areas where ISIS cells were believed to be active in Al-Suwaidaa desert and south Syria region.
