The ISIS Takfiri terrorist group took control of the Palestinian Yarmouk refugee camp in the Southwestern part of Damascus city from the Al-Nusra Front rival terrorist group.

The ISIS is now in full control of Yarmouk camp after five days of fierce clashes with the al-Nusra Front.

On Sunday, the ISIS had asked al-Nusra terrorists to surrender themselves.

The Yarmouk crisis started in 2012 when the terrorist groups took control of the Palestinian refugee camp and displaced over one million Palestinians. The terrorist groups have been trying to make the Yarmouk camp and its surrounding areas the main center of their operations.

The ISIS had sieged Yarmouk refugee camp for several months when it was in al-Nusra Front's control.

In a relevant development on Sunday, provincial officials disclosed that the Al-Nusra Front and ISIS terrorists had engaged in fresh clashes in the Southern countryside of the Syrian capital, inflicting heavy fatalities on both sides.

"The ISIS and its rival terrorist group of al-Nusra Front opened heavy fire at each others' strongholds in several axis of al-Yarmouk refugee camp in the Southern countryside of Damascus, which ended in the killing or wounding  of tens of terrorists," the sources said.
