BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The violent battle for southern Damascus has been put on hold after the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) asked for terms from the Syrian government.
According to a military report from southern Damascus, no clashes have been reported in either Yarmouk Camp or Hajar Al-Aswad since noon on Saturday.
While the Syrian Ministry of Defense denied any agreement has been made with the Islamic State, a source in Damascus told Al-Masdar this evening that the terrorist group is offering to surrender their positions to the government in exchange for transportation to the Badiya region.
The Syrian military previously offered to transport the Islamic State to this area; however, the latter would later ruthlessly execute a number of Syrian soldiers in Hajar Al-Aswad, prompting the government forces to launch an all-out attack against the terrorist group.
ISIS controls most of the Yarmouk Camp and Al-Tadamon, but they are on the verge of losing Hajar Al-Aswad, which only spells bad news for the terrorists.
