The General Directorate of Antiquities and Museums has obtained new photos showing the intentional destruction of the antiquities at the hands of the terrorist organizations at al-Bara site in al-Zawyia Mountain, Idleb Countryside.

Al-Bara site is on the UNESCO World Heritage List within the file of the archeological villages in northern Syria, and it was included in the List of World Heritage in Danger in 2013.

The photos, published on the Department’s website, show the destruction of the stony coffins inside al-Mazouqa pyramidal tomb at al-Bara site, and the destruction of one of the pyramidal and ground tombs which date back to the Byzantine era.

The photos shed light on the huge and continued destruction of the archeological stones at the whole site through using explosives and heavy machinery with the aim of selling them to be reused in the illegal constructions which spread in the perimeter of the archeological site.

Some of the photos show the effect of the terrorist acts on the external stony facades of al-Mazouqa tomb and Deir Soubat, in addition to writings on the archeological walls inside the pyramidal tombs.
