Sources at the province told that terrorists detonated a white van loaded with large amounts of explosives that was parked in front of Imad Ali School at al-Hamam Square at the outskirts of Lattakia.

Islamic State fighters moved closer than ever to central Damascus. Street battles reportedly raged in the Asali neighborhood of the capital’s southern Qadam district over the weekend, killing at least 15 fighters as Islamic State militants seized at least two streets. The district had been relatively quiet since rebels and government forces reached a localized truce a year ago.
Thus, despite the local success of Syrian armed forces, the situation keeps to be critical.
