Syria said Wednesday a military operation was needed to expel jihadists who have overrun large parts of a Palestinian refugee camp in southern Damascus, trapping thousands of civilians inside."Under the present circumstances, a military solution is necessary," Haidar said.He did not spell out when a military operation might begin or how it would be waged, but suggested that Syrian troops could be involved.Elsewhere in Syria, the toll in two car bombings late Tuesday in northern Aleppo province rose to 32, activists monitoring the war said, accusing ISIS of being behind the attacks.Despite sharing a similar ideology, Nusra and ISIS are at odds in fronts across most of Syria.More than 215,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began in March 2011 with anti-government protests, which spiraled into war after a regime crackdown.
