BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:05 P.M.) – More video footage (below) has emerged of the Syrian Army’s ongoing offensive operation against Islamic State forces in southern Damascus.

The footage shows the Syrian Army employing a tremendous amount of artillery (including rocket forces), armor and shock troops against ISIL in the districts of Yarmouk Camp and Hajjar al-Aswad.

Despite the general surrender of most ISIL militants within southern Damascus already, yet hundreds more insurgents have refused to surrender; thus government forces have to physically remove them.

According to some sources, whilst Syrian troops are yet to commit to a proper ground advance against resisting Islamic State elements, the terrorist group’s first line of defense around Hajjar al-Aswad appears to have been mostly broken.

No last hospital? last doctor? last schoolyard? last kittens shop?
No children gassed by the animal Assad?
Awww… it’s so hard to have a honest fight without White Helmets and “Syrian-American” ONGs on own side!
Just suck SAA’s and RuAF’s wrath, weirdos.

Sin piedad contra esos miserables hasta exterminarlos, mejor un terrorista muerto que vivo.

Main line of defense will not be in the outer row of buildings against an attacking force with overwhelming heavy direct fire support, but in second or third row of buildings. That is if the defender is competent and aware of the firepower against them.

Wipe them out – it will discourage the terrorists if they know they will be killed rather than be bussed to somewhere else.
