The Syrian archaeological mission working at al-Gharia village unearthed nine cemeteries and a number of findings from the Byzantine and Roman eras.
The uncovered cemeteries, however, were found to contain remains of semi-complete skeletons, as well as bones and skulls still in shape, added Zein-Eddin.
He pointed out that al-Gharia village, 45 km to the south of Suwaida province, includes ancient temples dedicated to different gods such as God Baal Shamin.
