Syrian Army destroys IS oil convoy near Palmyra

The artillery of the Syrian Army shelled a convoy of ISIS oil tankers near the ancient city of Palmyra and destroyed most of the motorcade.

The tankers were moving on the Northern road of Palmyra in central Homs. The Army’s intelligence units located them and called for heavy artillery fire on the convoy.

“The artillery and rocket-launching units of the army later shelled the convoy and destroyed most of the oil tankers,” military sources told FARS News.

The guards of the motorcade were also killed and wounded in the shelling, according to the sources.

Large clouds of smoke could be seen from long distance after the tankers in the convoy were attacked.
