ISIS Blitzkriegs Palmyra, Regains Control of Syrian City and Russian Military Equipment

The ancient Syrian town of Palmyra has been re-taken by the Islamic State after an all out attack over 4,000 militants swarmed the city from "various directions." 

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) confirmed that Palmyra had fallen to ISIS on Sunday after Syrian armed forces pulled out from the desert city.

"Despite the ongoing air raids, IS retook all of Palmyra after the Syrian army withdrew south of the city," the report said.
