The Syrian army said it has recaptured the ancient city of Palmyra from (Palmyra from Islamic State) ISIL for the second time in a year with help from allied forces and Russian warplanes.

Now the Syrian Army specialists have begun examining the historic part of Palmyra with the aim of demining the city.

“The flag of the Islamic State terrorist group has been removed from the city of Palmyra. It should be viewed as a joint success of the Russian Air Force and the Syrian military. Shortly, the whole territory of Syria will be liberated from the terrorists,” Andrey Krasov, deputy head of the Russian parliament’s Committee for Defense, said.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group seized Palmyra in a surprise advance in December after having been driven out eight months before.

“With backing from the Syrian and Russian air forces, units of our armed forces recaptured the city of Palmyra, in cooperation with the allies,” the military said in a statement.
