ISIS invading Palmyra: The World Heritage Site is in danger
21/05/2015 - عدد القراءات : 2025

Based on their destruction and looting in other historical cities in Northern Iraq, the ancient city of Palmyra of most international value is facing an unknown destiny, now that ISIS militants have invaded the city. This is a threat to the human heritage not only for Syrians but to everyone, where civilization and open lifestyles face fascism and methodological destruction.

We feel frustrated as we see the failure of the international community in achieving the UN resolution #2199, issued in February 2015, stating “that countries ensure that their nationals and those in their territories not make assets or economic resources available to ISIL and related terrorist groups” and “Condemning the destruction of cultural heritage in Iraq and Syria, particularly by ISIL and the Al-Nusrah Front”. Our call a few days ago to the international community to stop ISIS progress towards Palmyra was not considered at all.

As in other conflicted areas, i.e. Idleb and Bosra, we count on the local community and figures in order to neutralize the ancient city and the museum, hoping they can face such fanatic groups, who only believe in killing, robbery and destruction.

Our hopes go for the city, its citizens and the local staff members of DGAM, who have defended their heritage during the last 4 years with all their abilities, and we call all national Syrians for solidarity and unity for the sake of heritage protection against these barbaric attacks.

Thanks to the devotion of DGAM staff members and the cooperation of the related authorities, hundreds of Palmyrean statues and museum objects have been transferred out from Palmyra to safe locations outside the city.
