This is one of the most bad news I've ever read today:

"BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) - The so-called "Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham" (ISIS) has reportedly seized the Tar Mountains and Al-'Amariyah District in Palmyra after a swift assault that began on Thursday.

According to a military correspondent at the T-4 Military Airport in east Homs, the remaining Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers inside the city are attempting to withdraw safely from Palmyra before the terrorist group seizes the final districts.

Despite repeated claims of reinforcements arriving, the Syrian Arab Army was greatly outnumbered during this terrorist offensive, which ultimately led them to concede large parts of the Homs Governorate's eastern countryside.

While Palmyra has not completely fallen, most of the city is surrounded by Islamic State terrorists, making the evacuation of the residents the top priority for the Syrian Arab Army and their allies."
