The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is three street blocks away from imposing full control over the Yarmouk Camp District of Damascus after a series of firefights with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda) these last ten days.

According to the terrorist group’s official Telegram account, ISIS has seized every site in the Yarmouk Camp District, except for Ja’ouneh Street, Haifa Street, and the Palestine Roundabout.

If ISIS seizes the entire district, they will be in position to threaten Al-Tadamon and Qadam, along with the last neighborhoods in southern Damascus.

Currently, there is no Syrian Arab Army (SAA) or Palestinian resistance in the camp, so ISIS is just combating their former allies that allowed them to enter Yarmouk in March 2015.

Yarmouk is empty right?

Why not a constant barrage with termobaric bombs to burn out the lungs of the Saudi Barbarian filth and slowly roast them to death?

Just watch out for US privided MANPADS

I’m trying to understand this: why does SAA allow ISIS to be so close to center of Damascus? Why don’t they sourround the compound and deal with that swiftly and promptly?!?!?! For some reason SAA leaves pockets of rebels every here and there…shouldn’t they start cleaning that mess?

Syria does not have limitless resources. Why take resources away from efforts on other fronts to stop two enemies from killing each other?

If the camp is surrounded, then just lay seige to it and let them starve. The camp is a warren of boobytraps and IEDs. No reason to send in a single man when you can starve them out.

They build tunnels, so “starving them out” seems to not be very effective.

This reeks to high h**l. Can someone explain how this situation developed from the start? How did AQ and IS get a foothold here and what happened to the Palestinian resistance?

Palestinian resistance?! Good question! As I remeber, initially at least half of Palestinians residing in this refugee´s camp joined “rebels” against the legal goverment. Very probably as an expression of thanks to Bashar Asad who looked them after (and his father) since 1948 and 1967. So that´s why…
