Palmyra is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains large ruins of an ancient Roman city.

In May, ISIL captured Palmyra destroying some of its historic sites. The Syrian government evacuated the majority of the local population and removed the most valuable artifacts from museums to prevent their theft, sale or destruction.
