ISIS destroys the Arch of Triumph in Palmyra

Arch of Triumph in Palmyra
Arch of Triumph in Palmyra (archive)

DGAM received information by eye witnesses of the local community in Palmyra stating that the terrorist militants of ISIS destroyed the Arch of Triumph at the Ancient City of Palmyra on Sunday, October 4th, 2015.

This new destruction comes after confirmed news from the city about setting up explosives by ISIS around several historical monuments of the city, of which many have been reported demolished: Temple of Baal Shamin, the sanctuary of the Temple of Bel, and 6 tower tombs.

This 3-entrance Arch of Triumph starts the Colonnade, topped by an arch with beautiful geometrical and plant ornaments.  It was built by Septimus Sevirus between 193-211 AD.  The arch represents a unique architectural and urban solution to connect the Colonnade and the yard leading to the Temple of Bel, with 2 30-degree rotated gates.

Since 1980, the ancient city of Palmyra has been registered on the World Heritage List of UNESCO, who called it a war crime aimed at wiping out a symbol of Syria’s diverse cultural heritage.

Every passing day, we at DGAM are more worried about this significant historic city of the invasion of ISIS and their terrorist militants, for what Palmyra stands for of tolerance and multicultural richness, the things ISIS hates.
