The Syrian army has continued to destroy command posts and fired positions of the Islamic State Terrorist Group (banned in Russia).
The strikes continued on the Southern outskirts of Damascus, thereby supporting the offensive of the ground forces.
“Aviation and artillery continues to inflict surgical strikes on the command posts and firing positions of the IS in Yarmouk, Al-Hajar al-Aswad and the al-Kadam Quarter.
“Heavy attacks on terrorists are helping to advance the troops on the ground,’’ the source said.
Advanced government forces are attacking the terrorists’ line of defence from several directions at once.
The Yarmouk refugee camp and the surrounding settlements remained the last stronghold of terrorists in the suburbs of Damascus.
After the completion of the operation, which began late on Thursday, the suburbs of the Syrian capital would be completely cleared of terrorist groups and radical bandit formations.
