BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) is about to face their biggest challenge in southern Damascus, as thousands of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Palestinian paramilitary personnel descend upon several areas.
According to a military source in Damascus, following the arrival of their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army sent in more reinforcements from the East Ghouta region and nearby Dara’a Governorate.
The source added that the 105th and 106th brigades of the Republican Guard, along with the 9th Storming Forces, have reached the Yarmouk Camp’s northern axis, which is just a few hundred meters away from the Islamic State front-lines.
With thousands of troops in southern Damascus, the Syrian Army will likely force the Islamic State to accept a deal that would see their fighters transferred from the Yarmouk Camp, Al-Qadam, Hajar Al-Aswad, and Tadamon to the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
The purpose of this transfer is to ultimately consolidate the Islamic State’s forces in Syria before launching one final assault against the terrorist group.
