On April 28, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Palestinian Liberation Army (PLA) and other pro-government factions advanced in the ISIS-held al-Qadam district, south of Damascus as well as captured al-Ma’dhaniyah neighborhood and the industrial complex area, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.
Syrian pro-government sources said that the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Force had stepped up their aerial operations against the besieged ISIS fighters south of Damascus as the weather is improving.
The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq has not reported any new couunter-attackks against the SAA and its allies south of Damascus. According to observers, this indicates that the terrorist group is currently under a huge pressure.
Earlier, ISIS fighters launched an attack on positions of Jaysh al-Ababil, a Free Syrian Army (FSA) group, in the area between the Yarmouk refugee camp and the district of Yalda capturing a hospital and nearby buildings there, according to Syrian opposition sources.
Syrian pro-government activists said that the terrorist group attack is an attempt to sabotage an expected evacuation agreement in the area. Such a deal will allow the SAA to deploy in Yalda district, thus increasing pressure on ISIS positions in the eastern part of the Yarmouk camp.
