Assad Prepares To Shell Last Enclave Near Damascus

The Syrian army began preparatory shelling for an assault on the last area outside its control near Damascus on Tuesday, building on its recent capture of the major suburb of eastern Ghouta.

Recovering the Yarmouk camp and neighboring areas located south of the city would give President Bashar al-Assad complete control over Syria’s capital, further consolidating his grip on power.

Yarmouk, Syria’s biggest camp for Palestinian refugees since the mid-20th century, has been under the control of Islamic State fighters for several years.

Although the vast majority of residents have fled, the United Nations says thousands remain.
