Restoration of the Great Umayyad Mosque with local expertise and high accuracy

 Under the supervision of an engineering team of experts, specialists and with great attention to detail, workers were able to hone  the stone in the Great Umayyad Mosque and re-engrave it with the same holy verses and Islamic inscriptions as it was before one thousand and three hundred years in harmony with the creations of wooden decorations on the doors and arches as carpenters ingeniously interlock and inlay small pieces of wood to make unique panels  that tell the story of ancient civilization that  foreign-backed terrorism sought to destroy.

SANA quoted Dr. Saker Olabi, director of the mosque's maintenance and restoration project as saying that restoration work is going on elaborately where the minaret and the facades of the mosque’s courtyards are almost complete and the interior work is also almost finished as walls and pillars have been repaired along with ventilation, electricity, and lighting systems. The restoration and maintenance work has also been completed in the shrine of the Prophet Zakaria, stressing that work has already started in restoring the eastern part of the mosque which is interlinked with the antique souqs.

It is mentioned that the Great Umayyad Mosque in Aleppo, which was built in the 8th century AD, has witnessed previous restoration work that started in 1999 and ended with celebrating Aleppo as the capital of Islamic culture in 2006. Here again, it is being restored today, due to the devastation and destruction caused by the terrorist organizations who blew up its unique minaret, which led to its collapse.
