ISIS carrying explosives to Palmyra

ISIS militants plan to deliver explosives to Syria’s Palmyra in order to inflict maximum damage on architectural landmarks before leaving the city, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

"While the Syrian troops have been advancing towards Palmyra, Russian unmanned aerial vehicles detected an increase in the movement of terrorists’ trucks in the Palmyra area which indicates their plans to deliver explosives to the city in order to destroy as many architectural landmarks as possible before they leave the city," TASS cited the statement as saying.

Terrorists earlier destroyed the Arch of Triumph, the Lion of al-Lat statue, the temples of Baal Shamin and Bel and three best preserved funerary towers.
