DAMASCUS, Syria – Huge plumes of smoke could be seen billowing above the south Damascus suburb of Yarmouk on Friday as the Syrian Army continued shelling the positions of ISIS.
Earlier in the day, terrorists controlling areas in south Damascus have reportedly agreed to withdraw, following an offensive by government forces.
Pending a full surrender accord, the Syrian Army reportedly continued launching air strikes and artillery fire on ISIS positions in the Yarmouk Camp and the nearby districts of Hajar al-Aswad and Tadamun in a bid to clear the remaining pockets of terrorists in south Damascus.
Should terrorists in south Damascus fully surrender, the entire area around the Syrian capital will be retaken by government forces.
The offensive comes after the Syrian Army fully liberated Eastern Ghouta from terrorists earlier this month.
