Syrian opposition groups posted photos online Thursday claiming they belong to the holy shrine of the solemn companion of the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), Hujr Bin Adi al-Kindi, located in Damascus countryside of Adra.

The so-called “Adra Revolution Coordinaton” confirmed on its Facebook page that militiamen of the dubbed “Free Syria Army” have exhumed Kindi’s tomb and transferred his remains to an unknown location.

The true goal behind this act seems to blur the shrine's attractions as happened in similar cases, where tafiri movements’ involvement was common.

Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the Syrian government accuses foreign actors of orchestrating the conflict, by supporting the militant opposition groups with arms and money.
