BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a big assault in the Yarmouk Camp, today, targeting the neighborhoods controlled by Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis and Jaysh Al-Islam.
According to the terrorist group’s official media wing, their forces captured the Yarmouk Hospital and several buildings nearby after overtaking the Islamist fighters in the southern part of the district.
ISIS originally posted photos from the battle, showcasing their operation; however, they have since taken down the images.
Most of the Yarmouk Camp is under the occupation of the Islamic State, which leaves the remaining civilians inside the district at the mercy of the terrorist group.
While the Syrian Red Crescent and U.N. have attempted to deliver humanitarian aid to the beleaguered neighborhoods of Yarmouk, they have found themselves often blocked by the Islamic State terrorists manning checkpoints between this district and nearby Palestine Camp.
