Syrian Army, Desert Falcons Gain Control Over Strategic Height Near Palmyra
PALMYRA (Sputnik) –The offensive of the army and the Desert Falcons brigade militias against Daesh renewed Saturday morning. The fighting is taking place in all districts apart from the historic one.

On Friday, the Syrian army and patriotic militias retook the historic Palmyra Castle from Daesh terrorists.

The town of Palmyra and its historic ruins have been under Daesh control since May 2015. The jihadist group, which is outlawed in many countries, including Russia and the United States, has since destroyed part of the ruins, which are a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.
