The intense fighting at the Yarmouk Refugee Camp in southern Damascus has begun to catch up with both the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” as the death toll exponentially rises amid the Jihadist turmoil.

For Jabhat Al-Nusra, they have nowhere to go in the Yarmouk Camp, thanks in large part to ISIS’ large-scale assault to capture Ja’ouneh Street and the Palestine Roundabout in the southern part of the district.

On Thursday, the situation did not get any better for Jabhat Al-Nusra, as ISIS stormed Ja’ouneh Street with several hundred fighters.

According to claims made by both sides, the death toll in the Yarmouk Camp District on Thursday had exceeded over 40 dead; this number includes the casualties from ISIS and Jabhat Al-Nusra.

As of now, ISIS still controls approximately 90-95% of Yarmouk Camp; however, Jabhat Al-Nusra is poised to maintain control of the Palestine Roundabout along the Yarmouk-Tadamon axis.

Funny fact, they all fight for Q’ran but Q’ran says you mus read the Bible and the Gospels… And, if they were doing it, they’d really have a better understanding of Q’ran which would lead them to… cease their activities as these are against God’s will!
