ISIL has seized more than 50 percent of Syria and is now present in 10 out of 14 provinces in the country, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Thursday.
The reported data came after ISIL took full control of Tadmur city, including the Palmyra world heritage site in Homs province.
“[ISIL controls] more than 95,000 square kilometers in Syria and exists in the provinces of Homs, al- Raqqa, Deir Ezzor, al- Hasakah, Hama, Aleppo, Damascus, Rif Dimashq, Daraa and al-Suwaydaa,” the U.K.-based observatory said.
The statement added that ISIL also controls the majority of gas and oilfields in Syria.Güncelleme Tarihi: 21 Mayıs 2015, 15:55
