RAMALLAH (Dispatches) – The Zionist regime is waging a ‘systematic war’ to loot Palestinian antiquities in the Palestinian territories, a Palestinian official says.  Saleh Tawafsha, the director-general of the antiquities preservation department at the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, told Xinhua that looting Palestinian antiquities violates international conventions and laws. "Israel has seized or attacked hundreds of archaeological sites in Palestine since 1967, whether by destroying, controlling, or turning these sites into religious shrines for Jews,” he said.
