DAMASCUS (Sputnik) - The Syrian army is not engaged in negotiations with Daesh militants regarding their withdrawal from the Yarmouk refugee camp in the south of Damascus, a Syrian military source told Sputnik Saturday.

"There have been no agreements between the army and the IS [Daesh]… Everything said about this is nothing more than rumors," the source said.

The Syrian army continues a military operation against Daesh in the Yarmouk camp as well as the neighboring settlement of Hajar Aswad.
