SYRIA (OBSERVATORY) – Syrian aircraft and artillery have launched strikes against Daesh positions in the area of the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp and in al-Hajar al-Aswad town to dislodge extremist groups from the southern suburbs of Damascus.
The Syrian artillery and air force are striking Daesh positions in the southern suburbs of Damascus to fully liberate the city. The noise of the bombing is clearly heard in the Syrian capital, but Sputnik’s correspondent has not yet been aware of the results of the offensive.
It is in the area of Yarmouk camp that is the last defense of Daesh and al-Nusra Front in the suburbs of Damascus. In recent days, extremists have repeatedly subjected the area around the city to mortar fire.
After operations near al-Hajar al-Aswad, al-Qadam neighborhood and near Yarmouk, the southern suburbs of Damascus will be fully liberated from extremist groups.
Since 2012, the Syrian capital has been regularly under fire by extremists.
