On Monday morning, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched a series of airstrikes over the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) positions inside the southern Damascus districts of Al-Taqadam, Yarmouk Camp, and Al-Tadamon, hitting a number of sites belonging to the terrorist group in the process.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Air Force struck the terrorist group with 12 airstrikes combined inside the Al-Tadamon, Taqadam, and Yarmouk Camp Districts; these areas were once under the control of the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), but they were captured by ISIS in the Spring of 2015.
Following the conclusion of the Syrian Air Force’s airstrikes, the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – in coordination with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC), Fatah Al-Intifada, and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – carried out an attack against ISIS on 30th Street in the Yarmouk Camp District, killing a reported 8 enemy combatants.
Elsewhere, social media activists from the Syrian opposition reported infighting between Jabhat Al-Nusra and Faylaq Al-Rahman, resulting in the death of two fighters from the aforementioned Islamist group inside the city of ‘Arbeen in the East Ghouta of the Rif Dimashq Governorate.
In addition to killing two of their former allies, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group took control of a Faylaq Al-Rahman tunnel inside ‘Arbeen.
