Antiques Shop Sells Misappropriated Palestinian Paintings in Damascus

A set of paintings stolen from the home of the Palestinian artist Zaki Salam, a resident of Yarmouk Camp, have been put up for sale by an antiques shop in Bab Sharqi, in Damascus.

Palestinian sculptor Zaki Salam confirmed the piece of new on his Facebook page, saying some of his works which were taken from his home on AlUruba Street in Yarmouk Camp are being exhibited in an antiques shop in Damascus’ eastern gate.

The artist added that he was robbed of his paintings, furniture, and personal library in the conflict.

Over recent years, pro-government militias have been raking through evacuated homes in Yarmouk and holding sway over copper, brass pots, kitchen ware, and electric kit, among other equipments belonging to displaced families.

The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following a 33-day military operation launched in April 2018. Dozens of civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Over 60% of buildings have gone either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare.
