Finally: the Washington Post's Liz Sly and her team heard of the advances of Syrian regime army against ISIS in Palmyra

Look how much space for this story in the WP: "Syrian army reaches outskirts of Palmyra: Syrian government forces backed by Russian airstrikes have advanced swiftly in central Syria, seizing high ground around Palmyra and positioning themselves to recapture the historic town, held by the Islamic State militant group. The troops, supported by Lebanese Shiite militiamen, reached within 1.8 miles of the town, according to the state TV broadcaster." That is the whole story.
