Attar: Restoration of Aleppo

The “For Aleppo” exhibition kicked off on Monday at the Faculty of Architecture and Engineering at Damascus University, inaugurated by Syrian Vice President Najah al-Attar.

The exhibition includes 300 projects dealing with the restoration of historical sites in the Old City of Aleppo following the damage wrought on the area at the hands of terrorist organizations.

The exhibition aims to develop a clear vision for the future of the Old City of Aleppo based on the conservation and the structural restoration of historical buildings.

In her opening speech, Attar affirmed the need to present the projects to the relevant government bodies in order to benefit from the reconstruction phase.

Attar noted that Aleppo is one of the world's oldest cities and is known as a place of science and intellect. She also condemned the crimes committed by terrorist groups against the city’s monuments, saluting the resilience of Aleppo and its citizens in the face of terrorism.
