Archaeologist and adviser to the president of the SCTH, Ali Al-Ghabban, who is a supervisor for the file submitted to list Al-Ahsa as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, said the file registered 12 archaeological sites in Al-Ahsa as a first stage. Al-Ghabban said that 12 other archaeological sites, such as Al-Uqair Port and the center of Al-Hofuf, are being prepared to be included in the second stage. “Al-Ahsa has enjoyed great attention since the days of the late King Abdul Aziz,” he said. “To protect Al-Ahsa after the discovery of Ghawar oilfield, King Abdul Aziz took a strategic decision to keep all oil factories at a distance of 150 kilometers from Al-Ahsa.” | Copyright: Arab News © 2018 All rights reserved.
