BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The so-called Islamic State’s (ISIS) offensive in the southern districts of Damascus has stalled after several days of fighting in Yarmouk Camp and Al-Qadam.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Army was able to forestall the Islamic State’s advance in Al-Qadam after the terrorist group made an attempt to enter the central neighborhoods.

The source added that the Syrian Army firmly controls 70 percent of Al-Qadam, with the Islamic State only possessing the eastern part of the district near the Yarmouk Camp axis.

ISIS was hoping to capture all of the Al-Qadam after the rebels agreed to handover the district to the Syrian Army; however, the latter quickly entered Al-Qadam in order to thwart any attempt by the terrorist group to expand further.

While ISIS still maintains control over most of Yarmouk Camp and eastern Al-Qadam, the Syrian Arab Army is now in position to finally to strike back against the terrorist group.
