BEIRUT - Syrian state television said government forces fought their way into Palmyra on Thursday as the army tries to recapture the city from Islamic State.

Troops reached the "heart" of Palmyra, the state-run Ikhbariya news channel reported, broadcasting images from just outside the historic city which has been held by Islamic State since May last year.
