BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:35 P.M.) – A month-long operation by Islamic State forces against Al-Qaeda affiliate group Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) for control of the Yarmouk Camp distinct town in southern Damascus has seen the latter faction get totally annihilated by the former.

Both opposition and government observer sources in Damascus describe the fighting between ISIS insurgents and rival militants throughout Yarmouk Camp as particularly brutal.

Just like any battle with the Syrian Army, Islamic State terrorists are taking no prisoners – at least not without executing them soon after.

At the present time, ISIS is storming the Ar-Rija Square (map update available here) – considered by sources to be Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham’s final defense line and last stronghold area within Yarmouk Camp.

Should Islamic State forces take Ar-Rija Square, then Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham will have suffered absolute defeat within the district town – the years-long battle for control of it finally coming to a sudden and very bloody end.

The killing of all POWs makes all IS fighters in the area guilty of collective, depraved-mind homicide, serial murder and mass murder. Hope the SAA or whoever catches them has the death penalty for first degree murder offences.

Either die fighting or get captured and maybe face the death penalty IF proved you committed murder in a brutal no holds barred war. I’m sure that will make them think twice before killing the next unfortunate victim.. No Geneva Convention rules applied here by any side. Rule number one , do not get captured alive.. rule no 2 , do not get captured alive. This not a friendly football game where everyone stops and has oranges at half time. Besides the video showed nothing anyway. Stomping a dead body is an insult is it not , not a war… Read more »

Joining the IS group knowing that the ideology wants the death of all fighting non believers is conspiring premeditated collective murder. No individual guilt needs to be proven. IMHO.

Geneva convention does not provide that You cannot be punished for war crimes after been taken prisoner.

Desecrating the dead is a punishable war crime.

Those rules might be fine when Europeans are fighting a gentleman’s war , if there is such a thing , but in this and many other no rules abided by wars , especially this one there are “crimes” committed every day by everyone involved. Most of the worst offenders will die in battle and knowing this give not one iota too gentleman’s rules. I myself have been involved in a war where it was stated ‘ no low grade prisoners are to brought back” We want only the Commanders or high ranking. They knew death was the most likely result… Read more »

Good, let these jihadis exterminate each other. Someone go in when they are tattered and mop them up.

Besides that one corpse they stomp on at 0:38, is there any evidence of anyone else killed? It doesn’t seem like a lot were killed at all if they can only show one dead guy.

Both sides know what happens to prisoners. So the dead lie ahead.
