Yemeni Antiquities under threat

A temple in the endangered city of Sirwah
I know that I have posted several of these in the past but just knew that the Yemeni conflict was not being discussed much in the media and wanted to raise awareness of a particularly vulnerable historical site. There is a major ancient city, Sirwah, in Yemen that is under threat of destruction in the ongoing Yemeni civil war.

The details are in the History Today post linked here.
