"They want these ones?" asks one of the uniformed. French journalists asking the Syrian embassy in Paris wether military has taken action to secure the finds in Palmyra has not yet been answered.

The video is no proof for plundering of the site - though supposable we witness an appointed theft of ancient statues from the museum or the site at Palmyra.
