On May 16, a source in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told SouthFront that the SAA and its allies had captured most of ISIS positions in the northern part of the al-Hajar al-Aswad district south of the city of Damascus. According to the source, ISIS defenses collapsed following a successful attack of the SAA on the al-Quds Mosque in the northwestern part of the district.

Meanwhile, Syrian warplanes continued its bombing campaign against the remaining positions of ISIS in the Yarmouk refugee camp, northeast of al-Hajar al-Aswad, according to pro-government sources.

From its side, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq reported that ISIS fighters had killed more than 50 SAA soldiers and officers during clashes in al-Hajar al-Aswad and the Yarmouk camp over the past three days. Amaq also claimed that two tanks of the SAA had been damaged by ISIS fighters.

Local observers expect that the SAA and its allies will launch a large ground attack on ISIS positions in the Yarmouk camp from several directions once the northern part of al-Hajar al-Aswad district is fully secured.

    • Ed

      And yet it is still able to operate and no-one has found where it is broadcasting from

      • gustavo

        Of course, Russia-USA know where it is broadcasting, they have the technology to know this. We hope that the agency disappears as soon as terrorists disappear.

      • Oscar Silva Martinez

        They will go off air soon due to “technical problems” hehehehehe!!!

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        It operates with CIA-MI6-MOSSAD help in Haifa so how does one target it there?

  • Blas de Lezo

    Just like MSM, Amaq gets directives from their Judenrat masters.

    they are probably either got kidnapped or kidnapped and assassinated by ZOGs for telling the truth.

    they were gone since late january 2018 and 2 the same week zionist terrorists hacked smoloko twice and shut it down yet Scot managed to bring smoloko back online, who will defend smoloko now?
    I support christianity and european folk nationalism patriotism and american folk nationalism and patriotism .
    know don’t forget these germnan and austrian heros who were suddenly taken down by jews deliberately and those assasinations were with cover ups as to appear as accidents for the general public remember them don’t forget them.: vice chancellor Jurgen Mollemann a good man who dared to speak out and oppose zionist war criminal mass murderer israeli ariel sharon then assassinaed by zog cia mi6 mossad in 2003 , and german politician Uwe Leichsenring was assassinated in 2006 in a deliberate traffic accident, and Jorg Haider spoke out against bankers mafia doing the economic burden 16 days before he was assassinated before his last day and a day before he was assassinated by shadow ZOG agents he made a powerful good speech that the evil luciferians didn’t like in 2008 and NPD german political party candidate leader Kerstin Lorenz who was assassinated in 2005 by ” brain stroke” . that what not an accident with mollemann’s parachutes , that was not coincidence accidents . and mossad bombed north korea in 2004 look it up.
    all these 4 events were assassinations in this ( 21st , 3rd ) century , millennium with cover ups to appear as accidents and a medical condition.
    the most logical scenario is that mossad was chasing haider and he was fearing for his life and excelerated the speed of his car and it crashed and then they went to him and finished their assassination job he would have been elected to be the austrian chancellor.

      You say it like we vote on paper and it is act
      ually an election!

  • Redadmiral

    It is obvious that ISraHell’s Infamous Satanists ISIS are being granted one-way tickets to Hell. Hence, the slow grinding pace of this arduous assault. I fear many SAA, PLA and LaQs stalwarts will ne’er be seen again but will forever be remembered in new street names, squares and parks that will flourish in the years to come. Of course, we all hope that there will be only a few new street names and that the Hero’s of this mammoth battle will return to their loved ones and tell of this odyssey like Homer did the fall of Troy.

  • Oscar Silva Martinez

    It’s sad to see Syria in such a mess.

  • Rob

    An other stroke to Netanyahu the Israeli migrants will cry on victory of anti Zionist leader Muqtada al-Sadr’s alliance in Islamic republic of Iraq.

  • Rob

    More good news are coming. SAA and their allies are true heroes, kicking the as*ses of US gan*gsters.

  • That Guy

    This pocket is taking a long time.

    • testera

      No, it’s not. Trying to make it faster would result in significantly higher losses. They have more time to spare than lives to spare.

  • Wegan

    If there are no civilians, might as well drop a FOAB and kill the vermine quickly. We have a busy schedule and a lot of terrorists are begging to be killed elsewhere. Let’s move guys. Go go go go go go go

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Best to use thoseFOAB on FSA/ISIS reboot Terrorists gatherings.

  • Smaug

    Again, I observe, what’s with this one block at a time nonsense? ISIS obviously can’t repel the SAA so in the interest of saving lives: Everyone forward and make a dash to seize the objective.
