PanARMENIAN.Net - The Syrian and Russian forces unleashed a powerful assault over the Islamic State-held areas in southern Damascus on Wednesday, May 16 morning, Al-Masdar News says.

According to the report, the Russian and Syrian forces utilized both airstrikes and surface-to-surface missiles against the Islamic State terrorists inside the Yarmouk Camp, Hajar Al-Aswad, and Al-Tadamon.

A video taken from just outside the Mezzeh Airbase in west Damascus shows the Syrian military firing a missile at the Islamic State’s positions.
