Syrian army threatens to destroy one the most ancient synagogues in the world

Mohammed Kanaan, a senior in the Syrian opposition, warned Wednesday that Syrian President Bashar Assad's army is attacking the Jobar suburb in Damascus indiscriminately and there was a growing concern that the ancient temple may be destroyed during the attacks.


He called on the relevant international organizations, notably UNESCO, to step in and save it. The "Elijah the Prophet" synagogue is considered to be one of the most ancient synagogues in the world. (Roi Kais)
