Syrian Army, Palestinian forces advance towards ISIL’s southern Damascus HQ
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their Palestinian allies have scored advances along several axes in southern Damascus, today, despite facing heavy resistance from the Islamic State (ISIL).
Led by their Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army continued their advance in the Al-Ma’edhiyah Subdistrict, seizing more buildings that were under the control of the Islamic State near the Al-Asali axis.
The Syrian Army is now advancing towards the Islamic State’s southern Damascus headquarters that is located in Hajar Al-Aswad.
Meanwhile in Al-Tadamon, the Syrian Army and their Palestinian allies liberated more ground in the Al-Baradi and Al-Baradat neighborhoods, giving control of more than 50 percent of this southern Damascus district.
