In the Syrian city of Palmyra memorial yesterday was committed another atrocity in relation to cultural monuments. Militants destroyed LIH Arch of Roman Emperor Septimius Severus, the construction of which dates from the late 2nd century BC. Arc de Triomphe, as well as the city of Palmyra is in the number of protected sites by UNESCO.
The arch was mined from all sides explosives, presumably plastids. The power of the explosion reached one hundred kg.
Arch of Septimius Severus, Roman refers to a complex of Roman buildings 200-250 years. BC It was constructed in different places and has been associated with the military victories of the Emperor.
Militants systematically are destroying what ideology does not fit into their primitive doctrine. Traditional Islam, Christianity, and any dissent in its own ranks. The defeat, which they perpetrated in Palmyra is a sign of their ideological spiritual powerlessness compared to the history and culture of this land.
As we reported earlier, the atrocities that are doing militants LIH measured not only the destruction of monuments. It is also brutally executed thousands of people, mainly Syrian Christians. Among those executed and chief curator of Palmyra – Khaled al-Assad.
Russia today takes part in the war against the LIH in the form of military supplies to the government of Syria, as well as point-bombing aircraft aerospace forces.
