During the meeting of the Third Committee of the Assembly on human rights and the dialogue of civilizations, Syrian MP Fihaa Traifi said that smuggling and destroying the Syrian monuments by terrorist organizations, especially Daesh (ISIS), is a crime against humanity as a whole and a destruction of Syrian cultural identity, calling for finding solutions to reduce this phenomenon.
She clarified that the terrorist organizations carried out systematic operations to obliterate the Syrian civilization, particularly Daesh, which destroyed and sold the antiquities, especially in the ancient city of Palmyra, pointing out to the sacrifices made by the Syrian Arab Army to restore the city of Palmyra and protect its ancient monuments.
