Concert in Palmyra's theatre

PALMYRA WATCH: Russian maestro to hold concert in Palmyra's theatre. World-Russian conductor Valery Gergiev will conduct his orchestra in the ruins of ancient city after its recapture from ISIS (Arutz Sheva/ AFP). This is obviously a political move, but it's better use of the ruins than ISIS made of them.
