While the civil war in Syria has killed tens of thousands of people, it has also destroyed countless of the country's ancient treasures. Now a number of Syrians are trying to save what artifacts they can -- and are risking their lives to do so.

i fear the quest is doomed to save any non-muslim historical or sites or those with non-muslim religious significance in countries where muslim terrorists are running rampant.

eradication of non-muslim sites is consistent with their REWRITING HISTORY agenda.

I wish them well, but, as Hilary says, Muslims are NEVER ''big'' on preserving history of other cultures.

There IS no civil war in Syria but a proxy war induced by Israel and it's terror allies since over three years

Houses can be rebuilt but we cannot bring back the people who were killed.
