World heritage day: protecting an antique palace in North East Syria


On the occasion of the World Heritage Day on 18 April, Fight for Humanity published a video about the work it conducted with its local partner, the Orient Association, to protect the historical site of the Nabada Palace at Tell Beydar in North East Syria.

This palace was built around 2500BC and covers about 25 hectares. Archaeological missions worked there for 17 years before the Syrian conflict broke out. In 2020, urgent measures were taken to protect the site from damages caused by weather, lack of care and vandalism. Watch the video report of this project.
