According to the agency, heavy fighting continues in Palmyra, but all the dominant heights in the city are already occupied by government forces. The black banner of terrorists no longer flutters over the city - it was dropped by Syrian fighters and burned.
The Islamists, retreating, continue to resist, responding with fire from tanks and mortars.
