Jaish Al-Islam reveals reason behind closure of crossing between Yarmouk camp and Yelda

Jaish Al-Islam, in south Damascus, revealed the real reason behind its decision to close Al-Orouba crossing between Yarmouk camp and Yelda.

Jaish Al-Islam explained that it had sent an intermediary with a letter of demands, to negotiate the opening of the crossing with ISIS, including vows made by ISIS to not target any civilians in Yelda and at the crossing, to stay away from students and teachers, to neutralize the crossing between Yelda and Yarmouk camp from any military conflict and not to target the crossing, which is considered a humanitarian crossing.

According to Jaish Al-Islam, ISIS’s leader refused these demands, did not care about them and stuck to his decisions, thinking that the civilian organization and Palestinian entities will pressurize the opposition factions to reopen the crossing as they did before.

Jaish Al-Islam added that it will keep the crossing closed until ISIS obeys the demands sent by the intermediary and that it will not give up to any pressure by anyone. This is because ISIS breached the agreements concluded by several contractors, including neutralizing the crossing and not targeting it.

In the same context, the Syrian opposition factions published a video the day before yesterday, showing its members targeting ISIS at the axis of Al-Orouba Street between the town of Yelda and Yarmouk camp, with a guided artillery shell.

The barrier between Yarmouk camp and Yelda has been closed for the third consecutive day, as a result of ISIS’s snipers targeting civilians and which led to the death of one of Yelda’s residents.
