After a month and a half of his announcement, he delivered everything he possessed. Archaeological objects found at Abu Abbas headquarters


The 5th Brigade presidential guard, revealed the existence of antiquities belonging to the National Museum, which was hidden in Hayel Saeed  compound Al Abbas Brigades headquarters in the old city of Taiz.

Abdulkhaliq Seif, director of the Taiz Culture Bureau, said on his Facebook page that he had received reports of the presence of the remaining artifacts from Col. Adel Fara al-Dhahani and Culture Minister Marwan Damaj on April 17.

Saif said he was unable to collect archaeological items during the clashes and outside the committee to collect and receive the antiquities from Minister of Culture Marwan Damaj, headed by deputy Abdul Hakim Aoun.

The discovery of the existence of precious archaeological items comes a month and a half after the commission announced that they had received the last batch of antiquities that Col. Adel Fara had held at his battalion headquarters after the al-Houthi militia torched the National Museum in Al-Ordhi.

The Commission had previously confirmed the preservation and liberation of archaeological objects in 79 wooden boxes and an iron bag with an inventory of 199 pages.

The Abu Abbas Brigades said in a press release on Monday that it had informed Minister of Culture Marwan Damaj that the rest of the antiquities were in a room inside the headquarters.

The battalion communiqué added:  " We disclaim the responsibility of the competent authorities to maintain the remaining acquisitions.

The concealment of the Abu Abbas brigades by these precious relics from the Commission, and then reported during recent battles with the security campaign, has raised suspicions about the trafficking of antiquities by some battalions ' leaders.
