Mshaweh underlined the need for rehabilitating the archeological sites such as old Jableh Prison building (al-Saraya) and the newly discovered baths as they constitute an added cultural, tourist and economic value.

In turn, Martini that Syria constitutes a museum for humanity and contains the most important sites registered on the World Heritage List, indicating that the Directorate of Antiquities and Museums preserves them with all its capabilities, especially in light of the sabotage of many archaeological sites during the terrorist war on the country.
