DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:50 P.M.) – Islamic State sharpshooters in the Yarmouk Camp have systematically begun to target the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) perimeter around the predominately Palestinian residential area in southern Damascus.
A string of images released by Amaq Agency on Monday showed ISIS militants shooting SAA troops as they manned checkpoints, outposts and were traversing the capital city:
According to the ISIS-tied outlet, some of the targeted people above were rival Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants from rebel-held districts that neighbour the Yarmouk camp.
Despite lengthy and ongoing negotiations, both ISIS and FSA groups are yet to be evacuated from the jihadist-held pocket in southern Damascus.
While the vast majority of Damascus city is in SAA hands, a second larger enclave remains under insurgent control in the East Ghouta farmland a few kilometers outside the capital.
