ISIS militants were eliminated both at the very height of 939.5 and in one of the gorges where the command post of the so-called Islamic State was located.
Video of fierce battles for dominant heights using the army aviation and heavy equipment:
As a result of successful offensive operations, the Syrian government army and militia forces defeated several IS groups west of ancient Palmyra. Reported by the information service Al-Masdar News and the correspondent Lays Fadel. As a result of the special operation, several pickups of militants were destroyed, equipped with anti-aircraft guns and large-caliber machine guns.
Meanwhile, the ISIL militants in one of their accounts in social networks spread a statement that “a Russian military adviser was killed” in the Palmyra area. For ethical reasons, "VO" does not publish a photo of the body of the victim. In addition, information about the death of the "Russian military adviser" is not confirmed in the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation.
