A lightning assault by Daesh (ISIS) that put the militants in control of a southern part of the Syrian capital killed 62 regime fighters, a monitor said Wednesday in a new toll.Al-Watan, a Syrian daily close to the government, also reported Wednesday that regime forces had sent reinforcements to Qadam, but said Daesh had only taken "a few buildings in the district's east".Daesh swept across swathes of Syria and neighboring Iraq in 2014, but has since lost most of that territory to different offensives in both countries.
