Syrian Army Discovers Tragic Destruction of Apamea at the Hands of Terrorists
The Head of the Department of Antiquities and Museums of Hama in Syria, Abdul Qader Farzet, has announced that the ancient Syrian city of Apamea, which was recently reclaimed by government forces, has suffered extensive and irreversibly damage by terrorist forces.
Urdu Point news site reports that the Syrian army regained control over the ancient Hellenistic-era city of Apamea on May 6 and discovered that it had been tragically vandalized by the occupying terrorist groups.
Mr Farzet announced that the archaeological site had been heavily excavated using machinery such as bulldozers in an attempt to find ancient treasures. The museum, theater, church and other buildings at the site were also damaged and mosaics were taken away. But the worst acts of destruction occurred along the Great Colonnade Street, which Apamea is famous for.
