And in the case of liberating Palmyra (again), Russia's Special Forces were not in a charitable mood. Let's just say they were eager to get the job done.

As we reported last week, the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed that the liberation of Palmyra was "planned and carried out under the guidance of Russian military advisors". 

According to Russian estimates, 1,000 militants were killed or injured in the assault.

We've edited the report down to the best four minutes, complete with English subtitles — because we love you:
