According to sources in Syria, clashes erupted earlier today between the Syrian Army, and its allied militias, against ISIS terrorists, in the capital city, Damascus.

Fighting was reported in the Yarmouk refugee camp, and the Hajar al Aswad neighborhood.

In Northern Syria, pro-government forces, led by the elite Tiger Forces, are advancing towards the strategically important town of Al-Bab. Al-Bab is situated around 30km south of the Syria-Turkey border.

The town is currently under ISIS’ control, but the Syrian Army, and Turkey-backed FSA are looking to liberate the town in the coming days. Pro-government forces and ISIS are also fighting in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzour, and lifting the siege on the city may be a priority for the Syrian Army’s High Command.
