President Assad said the recapture of Palmyra showed the success of the army’s strategy.
Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Assad, a Kremlin spokesman said, adding that President Assad knew the Palmyra operation “would have been impossible without Russia’s support”.
State television said on March 26 that the army — backed by Russian airstrikes — seized the district of Al-Amiriya on the edge of Palmyra.
It came a day after government troops and allied militias drove IS militants out of the symbolic old citadel overlooking the west of Palmyra.
Television footage from the citadel on March 26 showed a soldier waving a Syrian national flag by the medieval castle walls.
Palmyra, a city with famous Roman-era ruins, was seized by the extremist group in May 2015.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group reported fighting inside Palmyra overnight.
It said IS militants killed at least 10 soldiers in counterattacks, including car bombings, earlier in the day.
