The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) continued their advance inside the Yarmouk Camp District of southern Damascus on Friday, capturing more buildings from their former allies “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) near the Yarmouk-Hajar Al-Aswad axis.

According to the terrorist group’s official Telegram account, the ISIS forces imposed full control over Jourat Al-Shedabati near the Hajar Al-Aswad Axis with the Yarmouk Camp District.

In a matter of 48 hours, ISIS has expanded its presence around southern Damascus, as they expel Jabhat Al-Nusra and several other rebel groups from this once densely populated area inside the Syrian capital.

Jabhat Al-Nusra only controls two street blocks inside the Yarmouk Camp District as a result of the ISIS advances; these areas are 15th Street and Ja’ounah Street.

@IHWCo nothing like running a Jihad in a fresh pair of New Balance tennis shoes.

Wearing white shoes when dressed in black is definitively a lack of good taste…
