Southern Damascus: Syrian Army Liberates More Area, ISIS Launches Counter-Attack

On May 17, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Palestinian Liberation Army (PLA) captured several buildings in the northern part of al-Hajar al-Aswad district and in southwestern part of the Yarmuk refugee camp, south of the city of Damascus, according to the Hezbollah media wing Syria.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) also announced that warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) had carried out several airstrikes on ISIS positions in al-Hajar al-Aswad, Tadamon and in the Yarmouk camp.

Meanwhile, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq reported that the besieged fighters of ISIS in southern had Damascus launched a counter attack and had recaptured several positions in al-Hajar al-Aswad and the Yarmouk refugee camp after killing dozens of SAA soldiers. However, these claims were not confirmed by any other source.

According to local observers, this counter attack is a desperate attempt by ISIS to secure its last positions south of Damascus. The terrorist group launched similar attacks before its defeat in Iraq’s Mosul in 2017. However, this tactic was proven to be useless and ISIS ended up losing more men and equipment.

Its not tactics of Isis just brainless actions in order to win the virgins in heaven. They prefer virgin goats above mature goats because they don’t know how to handle them properly


Any ISIS counter-attack will end in total disaster for ISIS….any way they are lost already.

This is urban war so the lines are not so clear. There could be any number of movements in no man’s land and even nehimd the lines that can be exaggerated in their significance or futility. That said what probably happened is that ISIS infiltrated some SAA positions but were routed.


Yeah say the arm chair salafist keyboard warrior, why don’t you go join your ISIS brethren it would save us ever having the comments being taken up by your BS post.


At what point does open hostility become harrassment, Mike? I don’t care for your nonsense.


Trump and Netanyahu both are busy in destablizing Syria. Both criminals are holding Syrians hostage.
