Syrian Army Is About To Storm ISIS-held Areas In Southern Damascus (Photos)

Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Palestinian Liberation Army (PLA) and other pro-government forces are about to launch a large-scale military operation against ISIS south of the Syrian capital of Damascus, the Iranian al-Alam TV reported on April 12.

Currently more than 80% of the Yarmouk refugee camp and the al-Qadam district south of Damascus are under the control of ISIS. Local sources suggest that there are more than 2,500 ISIS fighters in these two areas.

Syrian pro-government sources reported that the SAA and the PLA had deployed more units and battle tanks around al-Qadam and the Yarmouk camp on April 12. This proves that the start of the operation is near.

Al-Alam said that the SAA will be coordinating with “moderate” militants in the towns of Yalda, Babbila and Beit Sahm, east of the Yarmouk camp, to stop any attempt by ISIS to infiltrate these areas once the attack begins. Syrian opposition sources revealed on April 8 that Russia had pressured the militants there to take part in the upcoming operation against ISIS.

Local observers believe that the attack against ISIS south of Damascus will not be launched until US threats against Syria are cleared. No doubts that ISIS may make an attempt to take advantage of any US attack to advance in the Syrian capital.

    Disappointing that the PLA isn’t the People’s Liberation Army here. :D

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      here? where is here.

      • paul ( original )

        I think what he means is that it’s a pity that it is not the Chinese
        army engaged in this attack. He wants to see the Chinese standing up
        to the usa. Any way good news if true, I read that Russian Strategic
        bombers are deploying to Iran

    • leon mc pilibin

      Given time,it might be happening yet,,,

    • BMWA1

      Gorging Terrorists have not left enough food to feed PLA.

    • You can call me Al

      Ah got it – the Chinese !!!.

      Yes I agree totally.

    • Jeth Roderet

      Well, if NATO does something stupid the real PLA might very well soon be in action.

  • BMWA1

    Go Sturmoviks!

  • Agha Olagh

    Palestinians being to use for the Resistance and not a burden. What a surprise …

    • You can call me Al

      Oh please grow up, be quiet and shave that hooked nose will you.

    Now the SAA mustn’t show the usual weakness, now they must eliminate these rats right there, no evacuation for the rats! Like the Iraqis in Mosul, destroy them all! No more evacuations!

    • RusskiiTroll54

      I agree, with ISIS no evacuation, just kill them all

    • Ariel Cohen

      Killing them all means urban warfare with heavy losses, even if they win. It’s much more strategic to bus them off to another area, which can then be invested and bombed into subjugation. When you have limited military manpower that is stretched across the country, you must carefully limit attrition rates . .

        100 % correct……..but in the end this and the other smaller scuffles count peanuts……the chess board is now setup….and looks like this……north syria occupied by turkey which is just on the way to set up islamist paradise up there
        east syria occupied by nato (usa, french and british boots on the ground and alot of other nations in the air bombing)
        south syria..al tanf… occupied by nato(us boots on ground) with jordan being the backup country were logistics, manpower etc..
        west syria including golan heights…occupied by zionist and zionist /nato backed terrorists

        Bottom line….sooner than later SAA with the help of their allies, be it russia or iran or hezbollah will have to wage war against NATO.
        Unless someone backs down……Nato leaves syria….who believes that seriously whos not on LSD? yes no one.thank you.
        Assad steps down…iran goes back home , as does hezbollah and russia is happy spending billions and loosing face and goes back home? who believes that? no one…well thanks again….
        CONFRONTATION is unavoidable…..its just a matter of time…..and the zionist evil bastards keep singing ” timeeeeeee is on my side, yes it is”

        • RichardD

          The no fly zone west of river went from 0% to 70% of Syria with Russian intervention. And the Syrian government advanced underneath it. So obviously NATO backed down.

          Jordan and the UAE have both informed the NATO Jew 3 that will be no attacks on Syria from their territory on Syria according to Fars news. Germany just opted out also.

          There is no public support in the US or UK for another Jew war in the middle east for Israel. None of this is looking good for a confrontation with NATO, no matter how much the neocons want it.

  • Vince Dhimos

    So sad that the US is preparing to attack these wonderful people even as they attempt to free their country of terrorist elements that would not be there without US support.

  • gustavo

    Finally, good luck and be strong, brave, without mercy for terrorists, non deals, non buses, and non distraction from western media. Terrorists know that this is the end for them now.

  • gustavo

    SAA must not wait until USA decides to attack it to make this operation. This operation must start right away. If USA attacks Syria, I am afraid that SAA will not be able to do this operation any more because the large damage that USA will cause to Syria.

    kiilll al us is scum!!

    May the Almighty Lord grant them victory over Daesh and it’s benefactors.

    Anybody notice that the young soldier in the blue shirt next to the elderly gentleman is wearing a crucifix? Kind of proves that the SAA are extremely moderate, speaks highly of their culture!

      Syria is the last secular state in the Middle East something that the Zionists hate.
