Russian Military Base Captured by ISIS Terrorists in Palmyra (Photo & Video)

The Amaq news agency of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group has published a video, showing a field-type home station of Russian military in Palmyra. The footage shows trophies of terrorists – a large number of arms (mounted heavy machine guns, the Kalashnikov guns of various types, rocket anti-tank launchers, ammunition, and military hardware). The abandoned things indicate that the cantonment was left in a rush in a fight (we can see damaged equipment).

The cantonment of Russian military was located in the west of Palmyra, next to the former racecourse and the Jebel Kasyun mountain (we can see the Muslim Castle Qala’at ibn Maan on the video). A fierce battle lasted for two hours in the area of the mountain and racecourse. However, the position was not held, Russian military retreated, following fleeing Syrians.

For unknown reasons, the Russian command has not destroyed of weapons and ammunition, captured by terrorists, from the air.
