Syrian President Bashar Assad and his wife paid a surprise visit to a group of Syrian artists who turned a rebel tunnel in Jobar into artistic sculptures.
The artists had volunteered to transform a tunnel used by rebels in Jobar district to attack the Syrian Army into a piece of art to celebrate life and beauty in the Syrian capital.
The arduous but extraordinary efforts were dedicated for those hostages who died while forced into digging tunnels.
Rebel fighters in Eastern Ghouta used the kidnapped people to dig a complicated network of tunnels and trenches across the areas they controlled.
Assad’s wife, Asma, was diagnosed with breast cancer and is now undergoing treatment.
