DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:45 P.M.) – In a secret hideout in eastern Homs, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has discovered a large amount of artifacts that were removed from Palmyra Museum as ISIS overran the city back in 2015.

Footage released by Syrian state television shows the SAA retaking the lost artifacts after they were discovered earlier this week. In addition, ISIS also captured a large batch of weaponry which was abandoned by ISIS before it fled from the sparsely populated area in 2017:

In the coming days, the artifacts will be returned to Palmyra Museum where work will be done to restore any damage caused by ISIS upon the UNESCO World Heritage site.

Although ISIS is fully expelled from central Syria, some areas are still heavily mined and off limits to the SAA. Therefore, it remains a possibility that more artifacts will be recovered once these caves and hideouts are secured.
