BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian authorities recently recovered two Roman-era artifacts that were stolen by Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in eastern Syria.

According to a report from eastern Homs, the Syrian authorities recovered the two Roman-era artifacts while combing through the Al-Sukhnah countryside this past week.

“The authorities found two relief busts made of limestone that the terrorists had stolen from Tadmur (Palmyra) city prior to its defeat there with the intent of smuggling them abroad,” the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Monday.

Director of the Homs Antiquities and Museum Department Hussam Hamish, who inspected the artifacts, said that the Roman-era funerary relief busts bear Palmyrene inscriptions and depict men from Palmyra, one with a palm leaf on his hand, and the other holding his attire on his right hand.

The Islamic State terrorists left the Roman-era artifacts at an abandoned site in the Al-Sukhnah countryside.

Good recovery. these thieves didn’t steal all treasures and they could not defeat Syrian resolve and heart. May the terrorist of all stripes enjoy their permanent stay in h**l.
