Tension in south Damascus and Al-Orouba crossing between Yarmouk and Yelda closed

AGPS’s reporter confirmed that the armed Syrian opposition factions completely closed the checkpoint known as Al-Orouba crossing, located between Yarmouk and Yelda. This came after renewed sniper attacks and clashes between ISIS and the Syrian opposition factions in Yelda.

Our correspondent confirmed that the clashes resulted in the death of a civilian from the town of Yelda after being hit by three sniper bullets in the village of Al-Nakheel in Yelda. Another civilian was injured due to the exchange of fire that took place this morning between the two sides in the area of the crossing.

The neighborhoods witnessed yesterday the entry of many of Yarmouk camp’s residents to search for empty houses suitable for housing, in an attempt to displace the areas under ISIS’s control, to the neighboring towns of Yelda, Babilla and Beit Sahm.

Yelda is the only port through which food supplies can enter the besieged Yarmouk camp. The opposition groups, however, are accusing ISIS and Al-Nusra in Yarmouk camp and Al-Hajar Al-Aswad of killing a number of its members and activists in Yelda.
