    BEIRUT - The Roman-era monumental arch of Palmyra, a UNESCO world heritage site in central Syria, will be rebuilt by a Russian renovation and archaeological mission after it was destroyed by ISIS in 2015, Syrian government-run news agency Sana said on Wednesday.

    The agency reported that an accord has been reached in Damascus by the Syrian and Russian governments on a project that was repeatedly announced since the summer of 2020 and evoked again last fall.
