According to these sources, the Army continues its mission throughout Damascus's countryside, inflicting major losses among the armed terrorist groups.
Furthermore, the brutal clashes in Yarmouk camp between the Palestinian Popular Committees and the armed groups sustained. Palestinian sources, however, revealed to the daily that the factions seek the armed groups' retreat from Yarmouk camp through the factions' mediators.
