Assad’s army claims full control of Damascus

The Syrian army has declared that Damascus and its environs are fully under its control for the first time in six years. The announcement by Gen Ali Mayhoub on Syrian state television came after troops cleared Islamic State terrorists from the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp and the Hajar al-Aswad district. He reported a large number were dead, although some are reported to have been evacuated by bus to eastern Syria. This concludes the complete cleansing of all the towns in the Western and Eastern Ghouta, said the Syrian general.
