Deir Ezzor – Tell al-Sen : the site of Tell al-Sen, once again looted

According to a DGAM report, more than 200 pits and deep shafts have been dug in the area of the Byzantine cemetery, north of the city wall of the tell. Plunderers have disturbed and looted the tombs they have discovered during these illegal excavations. Besides, many areas of the site have been turned into dumps and the southern sector is held by oil sellers who use it as a marketplace.
The Association for the Protection of Syrian Archaeology (APSA), has received information, showing that the site of tell al-Sen, once again, was looted last week. APSA2011. 02.06.2013. Photos : Dr.Houmam Sad and DGAM.
