BEIRUT, August 13. /TASS/. The Syrian army together with self-defense forces have repelled an attack by a terrorist group on approaches to Palmyra (in 240 kilometers from capital Damascus), SANA news agency reported on Saturday.

A representative of the Syrian Armed Forces told SANA that government forces clashed with terrorists from the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization (banned in Russia) in 15 kilometers to the east of the city.

"The attack of terrorists was repelled. The military and self-defense forces destroyed over 60 terrorists. Several SUVs with machine guns were put out of action," the military representative said.

Among killed militants is IS military emissary Abu Turab, who commanded formations in central Syria.

The Syrian forces freed Palmyra from IS gangs on March 27 with support of Russian Aerospace Defense Forces. Russian sappers helped Syrian authorities to demine historical monuments of the ancient city which used to be called "a pearl of the Syrian desert.".
