On January 14, ISIS fighters captured several buildings in the eastern part of the Yarmouk refugee camp south of the Syrian capital, Damascus, including the headquarters of the Palestine Charity Organization and Abd al-Qader al-Hussine school, according to the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq.

Amaq said that ISIS fighters killed five members of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies and captured three others during their advance.

Syrian oppositions sources confirmed the ISIS advanc and said that over 70% of the Yarmouk camp is now under the control of the terrorist organization.

ISIS launched its new attack in the Yarmouk camp and Yalda district from its positions in al-Hajar al-Aswad district in the southern part of Damascus city on January 12. Al-Hajar al-Aswad is considered the main heartland of ISIS in Damascus, and Rif Dimashq governorate.

So far, HTS and its allies have failed to counter the ISIS threat in the militant-held areas south of Damascus. If the situation develops in this direction, ISIS may try to capture the districts of Yalda, Babbila, and Beit Sahm near the strategic Damascus Airport highway.

      • Thegr8rambino

        They are in Syria as well

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          They are the Syrian Republican Guards but both are Guard Military units.

          • Thegr8rambino

            Yes I meant IRGC which Solomon was referring to I believe

        • Solomon Krupacek

          as colonizators?

          • Thegr8rambino

            no as warriors/allies/defenders/peacemakers :)))

          • Solomon Krupacek

            interesting. in syria revolutionary = rebels. like fsa, ypg, etc. :))

          • Thegr8rambino

            you dont know why they are called IRGC do you?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            Sepah-e Pasdaran-e Enghelāb-e Islami

          • Thegr8rambino

            yes they are like the US marine corps

          • Solomon Krupacek

            More than us marine corps. much more …

            A know Pasdaran. Only reliogon fanatics can enjoy. This is fanatic alternative for regular army. During iraqo-iranian war fanatic young guys attacked the fortified iraqi positions. 3-4 times more fighters died in comparison with regular army. They ar the roots of fanatic moslem suicide attackers.

            The Pasdaran has better weapons, easier money. This is the private army of ayatollahs.
            Pasdaran has own intelligence service, better than SAVAMA. I know about Al-Kuds, the enemy of Europe. Pasdaran has own airforce. The iranian drone is also their child.
            Behind Pasdaran is Basidj, which can mobilize 1 million guys within 48h and more then 6 million within further 3 days.
            The economical influence of Pasdaran is also high. 10% of iranian GDP produce firms in hands of Pasdaran. They own the second largest iranian trust Khatam (valued above 8 billion dollars), one of most important irania oil firm, the Oriental Oil Kish and Mobin, the leadar IT-firm.
            The pasdaran began as people army, today is a beast which eats the future of iranian people.

            enough?

          • Thegr8rambino

            bareekalah (very nice) :)))

    • Joe

      These guys just changed uniforms to appear ISIS resurgence .

      They stand no chance , don’t worry.
      All will be dead meat pretty soon

      Idlib is where all the terrorists are gathered from all over Syria for a purpose to be bombed to smithereens .
      That’s why idlib battle joined by many Units of fighters by ASSAD’s allies.

      Hard battles ahead.

      Defend who? This is an inter-terrorist dispute. I do however pity the civilians living under terrorist control but many of them collaborated with them from the start so idk… This pocket will fall about the same time as Eastern Ghouta, which will probably be around the middle of this year or the 2nd half of this year at the very least, no sooner then that.

      • Thegr8rambino

        they must defend Damascus it cannot fall!!

  • Skorpions in a bottle! :D

  • You can call me Al

    “On January 14, ISIS fighters captured several buildings in the eastern part of the Yarmouk refugee camp south of the Syrian capital” …….. typical Yanker tactics.

    Send in some mercs and take them off one by one.

    I knew that President Putin spoke too soon. America created and continues to support ISIS and all terrorist groups worldwide, the only time this would cease is when we have an all out nuclear war.
