BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their Palestinian allies resumed their offensive operations in the southern districts of Damascus this afternoon, seizing new areas from the Islamic State (ISIS) forces.

Led by their 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate more ground in the Al-Qadam District after launching a big attack on the Islamic State’s defenses along the Old Damascus-Daraa Highway.

According to a military source in southern Damascus, the Syrian Army and their Palestinian allies liberated several points in Al-Qadam this afternoon, including the Bour Sa’eed Roundabout and its corresponding Industrial Zone in the western part of the district.

This big advance came shortly after the Syrian Army and their Palestinian allies managed to break-through the Islamic State’s first line of defense in the Al-Qadam and Hajar Al-Aswad areas.
