In the past few days, the attack on Palmyra has been intensifying by ISIS to control the ancient city. And if they has controlled on the city, this means entering in a black nightmare and a new series of destruction of archaeological monuments. When the city fell on 21 May 2015 ,where ISIS stayed for 10 months under their control, alot of monuments were destroyed, such as temple of Bel, Temple of Baalshamin, Triumphal arch, the Tower Tombs, and killed archaeologist Khaled al-Asaad.
We are totally convinced that they will do the same, as they did previously when they took control the city.
DGAM ask the solidarity from all Syrians for defense of Palmyra, which is the icon of Syria's cultural heritage, we asked also, even if they entered the city, they will not be allowed to stay, because that means more of destruction.
It is notice that DGAM had evacuated an important objects of the artifacts before ISIS entered on 21 May 2015 and after the liberation of the city, DGAM has evacuated almost completed objects of the Museum of Palmyra to safe places in Damascus, included the statue of Allat lion
