AMMAN - Russian air strikes forced Islamic State fighters to retreat to the outskirts of Palmyra on Sunday, a day after they had stormed the ancient city in eastern Syria, a war monitor said.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the militants were now fighting in orchards on the fringe of the city they captured on Saturday.
