Media reports state the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad on 21 May recaptured the last area of Damascus under opposition control and took full control of the capital for the first time since the outbreak of the civil war in 2011, after groups of Islamic State (IS) fighters holed up in an area of south Damascus, including the Palestinian refugee camp Yarmouk, were bussed out.
