DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:35 P.M.) – Clashes continue to rip through the ISIS-held districts in southern Damascus as the Syrian forces score fresh advance.

Today, the Syrian Army – backed by paramilitary fighters – managed to liberate new areas inside the ISIS-controlled parts of the Yarmouk Refugee Camp along the strategic 30th Street amid heavy fights against ISIS militants.

The recently-recaptured areas include al-Aqsa Mosque, al-Naqab neighbor along with several building blocks.

The recent advance puts the Syrian Army a few hundred meters away from the Army units stationed at the northern flank of Hajar Aswad neighborhood, where the extremist group risks a total siege.

Photos below, taken by a fighter in the Palestinian Aqsa Shield Forces, show the recently-liberated areas.
