The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) imposed full control over 15th Street in the Yarmouk Camp District after a violent battle with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” on Saturday morning.
Following the capture of 15th Street, ISIS received an unpleasant surprise when the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their Palestinian allies from the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC), and Fatah Al-Intifada reentered the Yarmouk Camp District after a short hiatus.
The Syrian Armed Forces and the Palestinian committees struck ISIS’ positions along Loubya Street and Safad Street, killing several terrorists after fierce firefight near the Tadamon District.
Recently, the Syrian Armed Forces and Palestinian committees have quietly advanced in the Al-Tadamon District, capturing a number of building blocks at the Palestine Street border with the Yarmouk Camp.
With the Palestinian committees back inside of the Yarmouk Camp; this should help marginalize the terrorist group and eventually expel them from this once thriving district in southern Damascus.
