Ancient artifacts go on display in Damascus

Muslim Times(Web Desk) – Ancient artifacts salvaged from Syria’s war-torn cities were on display at Damascus Opera House, including two rare busts retrieved from Palmyra.

The exhibit, which opened on Wednesday, also features pottery, flint tools and statues among the 500 artifacts on display.

Many of the country’s archaeological sites were destroyed or badly damaged as a result of ongoing fighting.

The Syrian Army salvaged some items of historic value when recapturing cities, but many artefacts remain unaccounted for or hidden in neighboring countries.
