BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 P.M.) – The Russian Aerospace Forces are hammering the southern districts of Damascus tonight, as they provide air cover to the advancing Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops against the Islamic State (ISIS).

According to a military source in Damascus, the Russian Aerospace Forces have already launched over twenty airstrikes above the Yarmouk Camp, Al-Qadam, and Hajar Al-Aswad.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside their Palestinian allies, has taken advantage of this Russian assault to storm the Islamic State’s defenses around the Yarmouk Camp, Hajar Al-Aswad, and Al-Qadam – intense clashes are reportedly ongoing at the moment.

The Syrian Army launched their southern Damascus offensive tonight after the Islamic State refused the terms offered by government.

ISIS has occupied large parts of southern Damascus for over three years now; they control most of Al-Qadam, Yarmouk Camp, Tadamon, and Hajar Al-Aswad.
