DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:50 P.M.) – The Syrian forces intensify its offensive on districts in southern Damascus as the Islamic State desperately defends its last foothold outside the capital.

Constant shelling with artillery and missiles, non-stop airstrikes as well as continuous firefights could be heard around the clock as the Syrian government is determined to re-take the last insurgent-controlled area outside Damascus.

Drone footage published by the state-run TV channel shows part of the ferocious military operation in al-Mazniyah neighborhood of the Tadamun district before the Army troops establish full control over the area.

The footage also features a group of retreated ISIS militants completely annihilated when the Army hit the buildings they were hiding inside.
