The Syrian army and its allies have taken full control of the Yarmouk Basin in southwestern Syria after routing ISIS members.

Yarmouk Basin borders Israel and Jordan and had been the last embattled pocket of the southwest after a sustained advance by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces into the longtime terrorists' stronghold.

The rural area has been the last wedge of southwestern Syria with continued fighting, with the army having taken control of the border with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and most of Deraa province to the east.

Between 1,000 and 1,500 ISIS insurgents who had been holding their ground in the area yielded under intensive Russian bombing from the air.

Recently, hundreds of terrorists and their families evacuated from southern Syria arrived on Saturday in the northwest of the country.

Syrian President Assad told the senior assistant to the Iranian foreign minister Hossein Jaberi Ansari, on Sunday that recent victories show the strong will of Syria and the allied countries .

About 1.2 million Syrian refugees have returned to their homes since September 2015.

The US and its Western allies have been actively engaged in the seven-year long war in Syria, including the illegal stationing of troops in the country and backing anti-government terrorists and militants such as Daesh, al-Nusra Front, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
