The Culture Ministry said that the destruction of archeological monuments in Palmyra being carried out by ISIS constitutes a crime against humanity.

In a statement issued on Friday, the Ministry called on the international community to shoulder its responsibility to protect Palmyra’s archeological sites, saying that it will hold at a press conference at noon on Sunday at Damascus National Museum to address the crimes committed by ISIS in Palmyra.

ISIS has destroyed the façade of the Roman Theatre and the Tetrapylon ISIS in Palmyra on Friday, and back in August 2015 the terror organization destroyed the tomb towers that date back to various eras extending between 44 and 103 DC, in addition to parts of the Temple of Bel and the Temple of Bel Shamin and murdering archeologist Khaled al-Asaad.
