Russia: Daesh Palmyra seizure may be staged



The Russian foreign minister has expressed suspicion that the seizure of the Syrian city of Palmyra by Daesh might have been staged. Sergei Lavrov says Daesh terrorists’ advance to the ancient desert city may have been engineered by the U-S and its regional allies to divert attention from Aleppo. 

Lavrov says the fall of Palmyra raises the thought that it has been all orchestrated to give retreating militants in Aleppo a break. The takfiri terrorist group recaptured Palmyra over the weekend, months after it was forced out of the city. Russia has already blamed the loss on the United States.
