BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – Unconfirmed reports have begun to emerge on pro-government social media pages covering events in southern Damascus that Islamic State militants under attack from the Syrian Army and its allies are raising white (surrender) flags.
Reports claim that the raising of white flags by ISIS fighters has been observed in the southern Damascus districts of Yarmouk Camp, Al-Qadam and Hajjar al-Aswad – these being key embattled areas at the present time.
Even if true, the chances are that the such an event is being done on an individual basis, rather than collective basis.
To this end there exists indications that some ISIS terrorists in southern Damascus preferred evacuation rather than a battle with the Syrian Army.
Updates to follow.
