Syrian forces advance into ISIS pocket
Clashes continue to rip through the ISIS-held districts in southern Damascus as the Syrian forces score fresh advance.
Today, the Syrian Army – backed by paramilitary fighters – managed to liberate new areas inside the ISIS-controlled parts of the Yarmouk Refugee Camp along the strategic 30thStreet amid heavy fights against ISIS militants.
The recently-recaptured areas include al-Aqsa Mosque, al-Naqab neighbor along with several building blocks.
The recent advance puts the Syrian Army a few hundred meters away from the Army units stationed at the northern flank of Hajar Aswad neighborhood, where the extremist group risks a total siege.
