BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:23 P.M.) – The Syrian Army has successfully taken control of new areas in southern Damascus that were once under the control of Al-Qaeda-linked militants prior to their very recent evacuation to Idlib.

In the last hour, Syria-based sources report that the last Al-Qaeda-affiliated gunmen from the Al-Qadam district town of southern Damascus have been evacuated to Idlib with the Syrian Army in turn taking over the area per a deal between the two parties.

As early as Monday afternoon, Islamic State terrorists operating out of the capital’s south challenged the arrangement by launching an offensive on Al-Qadam via their positions in the adjacent Yarmouk Camp district to seize it before government forces could takeover.

In the event, it appears that the assault by ISIS has failed and that the Syrian Army has assumed control over areas of Al-Qadam previously held by the now evacuated Al-Qaeda-linked rebels.

Since Tuesday morning, the Syrian Army has been shelling Islamic State positions and bases inside the Yarmouk Camp district with rocket artillery to suppress the recent aggressive activities of the terrorist group.
