Many of the antiquities on display had been hidden over the past few years, according to the museum's deputy director Jihad Abu Kahrlah, due to «the fear of any terrorist assault, whether by rockets or shelling, because these antiquities might be harmed severely, whether due to being directly hit by mortar bombs, or due to the sound, or the fire resulting from the explosion.»
On July 25, Russian Defence Ministry announced that several new de-escalation zones were set to be introduced in Syria, including near the city of Homs and in the region of East Ghouta.
