BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:23 P.M.) – The Syrian Army and allied paramilitary forces have scored another series of advances against Islamic State militants in southern Damascus, gaining ground in the district of Hajjar al-Aswad.

Sources report that in the Ma’adhiyah neighborhood, government troops backed by armor, artillery and airstrikes captured locations in the local industrial area, including a scrapyard and several nearby factory buildings.

Moreover, the Syrian Army has seized at least a dozen buildings inside the neighborhood of Al-Jorah, marking its official entry into the residential area after the local orchards were captured two days ago.

According to Al-Masdar News journalist Ibrahim Joudeh, the Syrian Army is yet to make a dedicated push in the district of Yarmouk Camp, with the elite Tiger Forces Division still amassing on this axis.

Updates to follow.

Good news, that is the way to act SAA. Fast, strong, without fair, without mercy for terrorists, non deals, non buses, asking for total unconditional surrender.
