Russia released drone footage Monday showing new destruction in Syria's historic town of Palmyra, which was recently recaptured by Daesh (ISIS), and warned that the militants could be planning the further demolition of antiquities. The Russian Defense Ministry says Syrian government forces are advancing toward the town as another battle for the ancient site looms.The ancient town first fell to Daesh militants in May 2015, when they held it for 10 months.The militants were eventually driven out by Russian and Syrian government forces, but they seized the town again in December.
