Idlib - SMART

Hundreds of excavators dig for ancient artifacts in the towns of Kafraya and al-Foah in Idlib, Northern Syria, after the opposition faction Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and Iran reached an agreement on the evacuation of the towns' residents.

An excavator who introduced himself as Abu Jalbib stated that 500 people came to dig through archeological excavation sites and caves located near the two towns. Abu Jalbib said, "Most of the locations were empty because the people of the previously Syrian government-controlled towns took (the artifacts) before the evacuation."

Abu Jalbib added that the excavators entered the sites in coordination with the opposition factions, without specifying which factions. Abu Jalbib stressed that some opposition factions demand half of the artifacts, whereas others let them enter "free of charge."

Abu Jalbib noted that some excavators found artifacts, but he found nothing yet.

Another excavator, who introduced himself as Abu Abdul Rahman, stated that the residents dug in most of the graves and grottos and took most of the artifacts. Abu Abdul Rahman added, "It is obvious that they used artifact detection devices because we did not find anything in the sites."

The HTS reached an agreement with Iran to evacuate the residents of the two Syrian government-controlled towns in exchange for releasing detainees from Syrian government prisons.
