    Soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army brandishing a national flag celebrate the liberation of Palmyra.

    The long battle for Palmyra is finally over, and Syrian army soldiers and loyalist militia fighters can now reap the fruits of their victory. It will take a lot of time and effort to restore this legendary site to its pre-war glory, but for now, it is time to celebrate.
