Syria slams US strikes near historic site

Syria’s culture ministry condemned what it called the “barbaric US bombardment of the Al-Rahba fortress” overnight in eastern Syria’s Mayadeen area.

In a statement on social media, it said the citadel, located along the Euphrates River, dates to the ninth century, without elaborating on the damage the site sustained.

The “blatant” attack violated “all international norms and charters that call for the protection and respect for cultural property,” the ministry added.
