Recently, ISIS has captured the vast majority of the Yarmouk Camp and the neighbouring Hajar al-Aswad district after prolonged clashes with Jabhat al-Nusra fighters inside these southern Damascus suburbs.

Our partners from www.SouthFront.org have the latest news on this story and other events across the battlefields of Syria:
