The Syrian government forces have recaptured the ancient city of Palmyra from Daesh terrorist group, said Director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) Ramy Abdul Rahman.
In exclusive statements to MENA correspondent here on Sunday, Abdul Rahman said that the Syrian forces recaptured the city, adding there is still a small area in south Palmyra which is not under the control of the Syrian forces.
These are the heaviest losses that Daesh has sustained in a single battle, he added.
Daesh group seized control of Palmyra in May and immediately started demolishing ancient ruins considered among the world's most treasured.
