BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their Palestinian allies scored a big advance in the southern part of Damascus on Sunday, forcing the Islamic State (ISIS) to abandon several areas inside Hajar Al-Aswad and Yarmouk Camp.
Led by their 42nd Brigade of the 4th Division and 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate many areas inside of the northern part of Hajar Al-Aswad.
These liberated areas included the municipal building, Al-Quds School, and power station, which were all previously held by the Islamic State for nearly three years.
In addition to their advance in Hajar Al-Aswad, the Syrian Army and their Palestinian allies from Liwaa Al-Quds also liberated the strategic Al-Roos Roundabout after a fierce battle with the Islamic State terrorists near the Yarmouk Camp axis.
As of now, intense clashes are taking place at several axes, while Russian jets repeatedly bombard the Islamic State’s positions in both Yarmouk Camp and Hajar Al-Aswad.
