Syrian Army forces combating militants in Damascus area (Source: AP).

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:25 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army launched a big attack, yesterday, to counter the so-called Islamic State’s (ISIS) previous offensive that took place earlier that afternoon.

Led by their 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Army took the battle to the remaining Islamic State terrorists in Hajar Al-Aswad, seizing more ground from the terrorist group after hours of fighting.

With these latest gains, the Syrian Army has found themselves on the brink of liberating all of Hajar Al-Aswad, which was once the largest city in southern Damascus.

Once Hajar Al-Aswad is liberated, the Syrian Army will be in position to finally launch a full attack on the ISIS-held areas of the Yarmouk Camp District.
