The military situation is rapidly developing in southern Damascus as government forces have made another step towards a victory in their battle against ISIS terrorists in the area.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Liwa al-Quds, the Palestinian Liberation Army and other pro-government factions have liberated more points from ISIS in the eastern and western parts of the ISIS-held pocket. According to pro-government sources, the SAA and its allies have re-established control of the Baath school, the Japanese Hospital, the Shafi’i mosque, an IT school and other points.
Currently, main clashes are ongoing in the northern part of the district of al-Hajar al-Aswad and north of the district of al-Taqaddom.
The Syrian Air Force has continued carrying out airstrikes on ISIS positions inside the pocket. According to local sources, about 30 strikes have been delivered by Syrian aircraft since last night.
