Search teams of the Public Authority for Search and Identification of Missing Persons, on Sunday, found five new bodies in the Meshrue Al-Rabt area in Tarhuna.

The Director of the Information Office of the Authority, Abdulaziz Al-Jaafari, announced that two of the bodies were mutilated, bringing the number of human remains found since the liberation of Tarhuna to more than 220 bodies.

Some days ago, the Director of the Authority’s Media Office reported that a new mass grave had been discovered in that area, pointing out, at that particular time, that the search had revealed one body, however, he announced that the Authority would continue to search for further remains, which were subsequently discovered at the same site.
