DAMASCUS, April 17. /TASS/. Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (both outlawed in Russia as terrorist groups) have been fighting against each other in Damascus’ suburbs for more than a week, Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak told TASS on Sunday.
"Problem districts [in Damascus and its suburbs from the point of view of observance of the ceasefire region] are Eastern Ghouta, Darayya and adjacent al-Maadamiya where fighting goes on practically non-stop," he said. "Further on, in Qadam, Tadamon and Yarmouk, intensive fighting between Islamic State and al-Nusra have been going on for more than a week.".
