Last quote about Palmyra

Mary Beard
One thing is for sure, the Roman empire, Britain included, was culturally and ethnically diverse, from the Syrians in Bath to Quintus Lollius Urbicus, the Ethiopian who met Septimius Severus on Hadrian's Wall, and the wonderful couple from South Shields, Barates and Queenie (Regina), he from Palmyra, she an Essex girl. There is no doubt about that.feedback

Irina Bokova - UNESCO

This new blow against cultural heritage … shows that cultural cleansing led by violent extremists is seeking to destroy both human lives and historical monuments in order to deprive the Syrian people of its past and its future.feedback

Vladimir Putin

Everything that is happening in Palmyra is the result of uncoordinated action. I've already said many times that to be effective in the battle against terrorism we need to unite our efforts. The question of Palmyra is purely symbolic. Aleppo is much more important from a military-political point of view.feedback

Vladimir Putin

All that is happening in Palmyra is a result of uncoordinated actions between the so-called international coalition, the Syrian government and Russia. I have repeatedly said that we should unite efforts for effective fight against terrorists.feedback

Steve Townsend

We will strike it if we see it moving away from Palmyra. I think ... as long as it stays in Palmyra, the Russians will have the lead and the regime will have the lead to deal with that.feedback

Rami Abdulrahman

I don't think the regime would withdraw forces from Aleppo to Palmyra and risk losing Aleppo. I think the regime's priority now is to finish the battle for Aleppo before the end of the month for sure. As for Palmyra, the whole international community would stand by it against [the Islamic State].feedback

Dmitry Peskov

The threat of losing Palmyra is a loss for all civilized humankind, not just for Russia.feedback

Osama al-Khatib

There is strong fighting on all sides. There is no exit except through a corridor to the west.feedback

Ash Carter

By combining our capabilities with those of our local partners, we've been squeezing ISIL by applying simultaneous pressure from all sides and across domains, through a series of deliberate actions to continue to build momentum.feedback

Bashar al-Assad

It's true that Aleppo will be a win for us, but let's be realistic – it won't mean the end of the war in Syria. But it will be a huge step towards this end. Terrorists are present elsewhere. Even if we finish with Aleppo, we will continue our war against them.feedback

Denis Loctier

Palmyra was under control of the co-called Islamic State for almost a year. During that time, its architectural heritage was partially destroyed. The iconic Bel Temple and the Temple of Baalshamin, built more than 2000 years ago were left in ruins.feedback

Vladimir Putin

After the main part of our military contingent was withdrawn from Syria we left the Syrian army in a situation which enabled it to mount serious offensive operations with the support of the part of our military which stayed there. And already the Syrian army has taken over Palmyra since our partial withdrawal.feedback

Jamil Al-Quaiiem

They destroyed most of the Arc of Triumph. Many of the details are missing, but I think we can rebuild it.feedback

Maamoun Abdulkarim

We expected the worst because of the liberation fighting but I think the nightmare is over. The panoramic picture of Palmyra is fine.feedback

Maamoun Abdulkarim

Palmyra has been liberated. This is the end of the destruction in Palmyra. How many times did we cry for Palmyra? How many times did we feel despair? But we did not lose hope.feedback

Ban Ki-moon - United Nations

We are encouraged and fortunate that Syrian government forces have been to retrieve or defeat ISIS from Palmyra and is now able to preserve and protect these human common asset – cultural asset.feedback

John McCain

There is no strategy. And anybody that says that there is, I'd like to hear what it is, because it certainly isn't apparent now and…. right now we are seeing these horrible, reports are now in Palmyra, they're executing people and leaving their bodies in the streets. Meanwhile, the President of the United States is saying the biggest enemy we have is climate change.feedback

Charlie Winter

We're in the run up to Ramadan and I expect it's a bit of a propaganda surge for them, to cause a peak of interest. We cannot know for sure, but it's important to know that it's not a foregone conclusion that ISIL will destroy Palmyra.feedback

Mechtild Rössler

We are very concerned and upset about the situation, because Palmyra is one of the most important World Heritage sites. Also, it's also one of the first sites that we included on our list in 1980. It is a really important site, with Greek-Roman influences. Palmyra is also called the 'Venice of the desert.'.feedback

Irina Bokova - UNESCO

Palmyra is an unbelievable monument in the middle of the desert. It is a place where we see different cultures. From Rome, Byzantine and Persia, Greece and Islam … We can not permit that Palmyra will be destroyed.feedback

Irina Bokova - UNESCO

Our position is very clear that heritage sites should not be used for military purposes.feedback
