Palestinian delegation in occupied Syrian Golan in a solidarity visit

A high ranking Palestinian delegation on Saturday visited the occupied Syrian Golan within the framework of the Syrian-Palestinian solidarity in the face of the Israeli occupation.

Members of the delegation, which was led by Secretary of Central Committee of Fatah Movement Jibril Al-Rajjoub, met with a number of national figures in the occupied Syrian village of Baq'ata. They affirmed the Palestinian people's rejection of the conspiracy hatched against Syria because of its strong support for the Palestinian cause, reiterating the solidarity of the Palestinian people with their Syrian brothers in the face of terrorism and division schemes.

The guest delegation comprised the Palestinian Information Minister Ahmad Assaf, Minister of Sport Issam Qaddoumi, the Palestinian Ambassador in Damascus Sameer Al-Rifa'I and a number of Palestinian leading figures.

The Palestinian Information Minister Ahmad Assaf said "when I visit the Golan, I realize how patriotic the people in this region are. Their national belongingness and strong adherence to their land is confirmed day after day."

The Syrian Golan is the home of the oldest sculpture in the world

The Syrian Golan, occupied by Israel since 1967, has a unique  cultural history dating back to the Paleolithic era.  The numerous artifacts document the existence of 170 archaeological sites in the  occupied Golan and prove that fine art has deep roots in that region, as archaeological findings indicate that the Syrian Golan is the home of the first attempts of plastic art in the world.

“The statue discovered in Golan represents the oldest creative sculpture work in the world and the oldest evidence to the emergence of the art of sculpture in this area”, Syrian historian, Dr. Mahmoud El-Sayyed, from the General Directorate of Antiquities and Museums (GDAM), said, according to a report published recently by SANA Arabic.

He indicated that this statue confirms that the symbolic expression in humans appeared at an early age of  the history of human life and that “Homo-Erectus” ( an extinct species of archaic human from the Pleistocene, with its earliest occurrence about 2 million years ago)  knew plastic art. This fact goes in contrary with some archaeologists' belief that the birth of plastic art had come in the last stages of the Neanderthal era, and that the art of sculpture preceded the art of painting.

The statue was discovered in 1981 in an archaeological site in Lake Ram area in the occupied Syrian Golan during the illegal excavations carried out  by the Zionist occupation.
