Damascus: A mass grave combining the bodies of 65 Syrian soldiers was uncovered on Thursday near Syria’s ancient city of Palmyra.

The mass grave was dug up near an airbase in the countryside of Palmyra, combining the bodies of Syrian soldiers and allied fighters, who were executed by the Islamic State (IS) when the terror group was in control of the city between May 2015 and March 2016, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Syrian army recaptured Palmyra by the end of March 2016.
