Newa near Dara’a: Appeal to the institutions in charge of the heritage and museums

Article  •  Publié sur Souria Houria le 19 janvier 2013

Syrian authorities have completely destroyed buildings dated to the Roman period on 03. 01. 2013, using a bulldozer under the protection of a tank and a hand of soldiers of the official army.
They have destroyed these buildings because, they said, FSA members were hiding in them, despite the presence of several checkpoints of the official army in the city and their ability to protect these buildings.
This barbarian act might encourage the two parties in conflict to destroy archaeological monuments if the institutions in charge of the preservation of the heritage, the archaeology and the museum does not intervene
