The Tetrapylon
A team from the Directorate General of Antiquities and Museums visited Palmyra during the past two days. They have conducted a new assessment of the recent damage during the second occupation by ISIS of the city between December 11, 2016 and March 2, 2017

The new assessment shows that the damage is limited to the central part of the facade of the theatre and colomns of the Tetrapylon, these two monuments had previously been restored

Notably 15 columns of the Tetrapylon are copies, counter to the original ceiling, which has been destroyed, while the bases of the columns are intact and four of the columns are still standing in place.

We were afraid and we expected the worst scenarios; luckily, the terrorists did not have enough time to carry out more crimes against the human heritage. Where we have not spotted any new damage so far in the Tomb of the Three Brothers, Temple of Bel, Temple of Nebo, Camp of Diocletian, the Straight Street, Agora and other monuments.

The Directorate General of Antiquities and Museums will continue to work, where it left off previously, the assessment team will prepare a detailed structural evaluation of the status of two destroyed monuments soon, in addition, another team will assess the illicit excavation within the archaeological site.

We will continue to implement the action plan in coordination with international and national partners, led by DGAM under the umbrella of UNESCO, to ensure respect of international values of the archaeological site that led to its inscription on the World Heritage list.
