The General Staff of the Syrian Army on Thursday said it had recaptured the historical city of from the extremist group (IS).

The city, which is home to Greco Roman ruins on the United Nations cultural body’s World Heritage list, had become the scene of heavy fighting for months, Efe news agency reported.

“Units from our armed forces, in cooperation with our allies, have regained the city of Tadmur ( in Arabic) as well as the surrounding region,” said the Syrian Army order in a statement released by the state news agency, SANA.

The units headed by and entered the city on Thursday three months after IS took it over.

In line with the military, driving the extremists from the city, whose historical ruins are a UN Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organisation world heritage site, is a serious drawback for IS, which started to fail.

Retaking the city was reached soon following the Syrian military took control over the archaeological citadel of Palmyra, communications hill to the west of the city as well as the Dedeman Hotel to the south of the city, based on SANA.

Earlier in the day IS combatants pulled away from Palmyra, based on a war tracking group.

Within their escape, the terrorists planted mines in a variety of points of the city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

SANA verified that military engineering units have dismantled mines and explosives planted by IS combatants in the region.

The Syrian military, together with pro- Russian airborne support and government militias, on Wednesday entered Palmyra, which has been since December below the management of IS.

The terror organisation seized in May 2015 and was driven from the city eight months after by Syrian troops, but recovered control of the early Greco Roman city in December.

The city has faced significant damage due to the IS as well as the fighting -occupation.
