Syrian army advances in Palmyra

Syrian military shows video clips of heavy artillery bombardment in Palmyra

Syrian government forces advanced into Palmyra on several fronts on Saturday with support from air strikes and artillery bombardment.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights described it as the heaviest assault yet in a three-week campaign by the Syrian army and allied militia fighters to recapture the desert city from ISIL who seized the town in May 2015.

A team of experts are expected to be in the historic town within days to assess the damage to the World Heritage site.
