BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 A.M.) – On Tuesday, the Syrian Army took control of most of the Al-Qadam district in southern Damascus following the withdrawal of Al-Qaeda-linked militants from the area and the hand-over of their positions to government forces per an evacuation agreement.

As soon as the deal took effect, Islamic State terrorists kicked-off an assault to seize Al-Qadam (via their positions in the Yarmouk Camp district) before the Syrian Army could assume control over the suburb.

Heavy clashes erupted as a result of the move and since then both the Syrian Army and ISIS have been trading blows to impose total control over Al-Qadam.

According to Islamic State media, clashes with government forces have seen the terrorist group kill at least ten Syrian troops. It is generally the case that ISIS exaggerates enemy losses by about two-fold, this indicating that at least 5 army soldiers have died.

At the present time, the Syrian Army controls approximately 70 percent of Al-Qadam whilst ISIS holds the remaining thirty percent.
