The co-chair of the Antiquities Directory Hamid Nasser asserted that the archeological sites in Afrin have been subjected to destruction completely in addition to the looting, and added a committee to document the violations that targeted the archeological sites in Afrin must be formed.    

This came in the activities of the " Civilization Call" Exhibition which was organized in the Serdem Camp in al-Shahba Canton and concluded on Wednesday.

He said that they showed photos in the exhibition which were documented in their campaign and researches in the Afrin canton since the Rojava Revolution.

Hamid said we have documented some of these photos under the bombing of the Turkish occupation Army and its mercenaries during the participation in the Resistance of the Age , and other documents were sent by special sources during  the looting and sending the antiquities to Turkey.

The violations of the Turkish occupation were documented by the photos and videos by ANHA.

Nasser said that they have focused on the efforts of the Democratic Autonomous Administration in protecting the antiquities of Afrin and highlight it historical importance along the ages.  

Nasser expect the degree of the destruction and the looting to be more than they have documented because the Turkish occupation does not allow the international organizations to enter Afrin and to see the reality in the areas of Afrin.
