Russian engineer teams have finished removing IEDs in Palmyra’s archeological and urban areas.
This was the second time when Russian experts dismantled IEDs in Palmyra. They had done the same task following the first liberation of Palmyra in the spring of 2016.
Russian engineer teams operating in Syria use various modern equipment like Uran-6 robots specialized in removing IEDs and underground detection systems.
Clashes continue between the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS terrorists in the northern and eastern outskirts of Palmyra as the Syrian Army, supported by the Russian Air Force, attempts to capture Jabal Mazar, Mustadira Oil Fields and al-Talila Sanctuary.
Russian warplanes ceaselessly target ISIS forces in Talila, Jabal Mazar, Armament Storage, and Arak village in addition to the pressure which the terrorist group faces in Raqqa, Homs and Aleppo provinces. It could be expected that the extremist organization will retreat from the entire region to more fortified fronts near Raqqa and Sakhna Oil Fields.
