The Syrian armed forces and allies have liberated the town without any air assistance.
Today, it is reported in Sputniknews.com that a Syrian brigadier-general has said that the Syria government forces have regained control of historic area of Palmyra.
According to him, the Syrian armed forces and allies have liberated the town without any air assistance.
“The Syrian army regained control of the historic town of Tadmur (Palmyra) with small weapons,” a Syrian brigadier-general told Sputnik.
Since May 2015, Palmyra, a historic Syrian city, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, has been under control of ISIS terrorists.
Nevertheless, the Arab country is currently observing an agreement for the cessation of hostilities which entered into force on February 27. The agreement stipulates the cessation of all military hostilities in Syria, except for the operations against ISIS terrorist group and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants.
The agreement was negotiated by Russia and the United States. Many suggest that Washington is among the main supporters of terrorists fighting against the Syrian government forces.
