    BEIRUT: Islamic State group fighters advanced to the gates of ancient Palmyra Thursday, raising fears the Syrian world heritage site could face destruction of the kind the jihadists have already wreaked in Iraq. As it overran nearby villages, IS executed 26 civilians—10 of whom were beheaded—for “collaborating with the regime,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
