BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – Three days after Liwaa Al-Quds redeployed to the Al-Qadam District, several other Palestinian groups began mobilizing in southern Damascus for their upcoming offensive against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).
According to a military source in Damascus, a large number of Palestinian paramilitary personnel redeployed from the local Jaramana Camp to the Al-Qadam and Tadamon districts in order participate in the upcoming offensive against ISIS.
The source added that the majority of those paramilitary personnel were members of Fatah Al-Intifada and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC).
Fatah Al-Intifada and the PFLP-GC are two battle-tested paramilitary groups that have participated in the prior battles that took in place in southern Damascus; most notably, the battle for Yarmouk Camp.
Also taking part in the upcoming offensive will be the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), which is the Palestinian wing of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
The PLA have taken part in several battles across Syria, including all of the offensives in the East Ghouta region.
