Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists have destroyed part of a Roman theatre and the legendary four-column structure ‘Tetrapylon’ in the ancient city of Palmyra, Syrian TV reports.
The facade of the Roman theatre has been completely destroyed, Syrian state TV reported , while  the scale of damage is currently unknown.

IS took control of Palmyra from Syrian troops in December for the second time, after the city was liberated by Syria’s government forces, backed by Russian air power, in March.
