Syrian regime forces are gathering around a southern part of Damascus ahead of a planned operation against Daesh (ISIS) there, a war monitor said Thursday.Daesh fighters have controlled large parts of the Palestinian camp of Yarmouk and sections of the neighboring districts of Hajar al-Aswad and Tadamun in the capital's south since 2015 .Last month, they overran the adjacent Qadam neighborhood, taking advantage of Syrian troops being busy with an operation against rebels in Eastern Ghouta on the capital's northeastern flank.Clashes broke out that year between regime forces and rebels in the camp, causing thousands of people to flee.
