President and Mrs. Assad Visit Tunnel in Jobar Transformed Into a Place of Art and Creativity

On Thursday, President Bashar al-Assad and Mrs. Asma al-Assad visited one of the tunnels of death dug by the terrorists in Jobar neighborhood, which 18 artists turned into a place of art and creativity.

President al-Assad and Mrs. Asma praised the initiative and efforts of the “Aram” team’s artists who decorated the tunnel and cleared away the darkness of terrorism that haunted it for years, with artistic carvings depicting the sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army, the Unknown Soldier and the ancient and modern history of Syria.

President al-Assad affirmed that the destruction, darkness and death is the culture of terrorists, while construction, light, life and art are “our own.”

“Every sculpture on these walls reminds us of the heroes of the Syrian Arab Army who fought valiantly to liberate this holy soil, which is mixed with the blood of our martyrs and wounded,” the President affirmed.

The tunnel which was dug by terrorists under a school destroyed by mercenaries was transformed by a group of Syrian artists into an art gallery, including 20 paintings. The work took 25 days, covers an area of 80 square meters and is at a depth of nine meters underground.

18 Syrian artists carved various sculptures on the walls of the tunnel reflecting the victories of the Syrian Arab Army, the values of martyrdom and peace, harmony among Syrian society and the civilization and history of Syria as they turned the tunnel into a showroom, erasing the darkness of thought that had previously dominated it.
