The ISIS-linked news agency revealed that ISIS fighters began their advance with a VBIED attack that targeted a key position of Jaysh al-Islam and HTS in al-Zain neighborhood. During their attack, ISIS killed five fighters of Jaysh al-Islam and HTS, injured 15 others and captured one, according to Amaq.

From its side, Jaysh al-Islam claimed that its fighters repelled the ISIS attack west of Yalda district. However, Syrian opposition sources confirmed the ISIS advance in the district.

On October 20, 2017 ISIS fighters launched a similar attack and managed to capture new positions in the eastern part of the Yarmouk camp. Observers believe that the new ISIS attack is aimed at expanding the influence of the terrorist group outside the camp in order to threaten Damascus city.

    Kindly asking, where is this map from South Front? In the description of the map, the red portion is described as “Iranian Militia”. Also according to the map, the blue portion is HTS. Just pointing it out, thank you.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      The logo is on the bottom believe it’s NORS studies a Western backed pro Islamists jihadi supporter and map makers, sorry for the short description. They can’t make a map without the claim of “Iranian Militia” they can lose their funding otherwise.

    “…Observers believe that the new ISIS attack is aimed at expanding the influence of the terrorist group outside the camp in order to threaten Damascus city…”

    Tit for tat. Maybe Syria should think about ‘influencing’ Ras Tanura and Yanbu as a kind of “Your welcome, assholes!” to the Saudis. (Ask the Houthis for the proper coordinates – they seem to have them dialed in pretty accurately)
