Director of Aleppo Archeology and Museums Dr. Yousef Kanjo said that the burial chamber was carved in limestone and accessible through a narrow entrance facing south ending in a circular stone door measuring 100 cm in diameter, leading into the oval-shaped burial chamber.
He said that the excavations uncovered the remains of 8 skeletons of different ages and in different positions, most of them in a crouching position with the head facing north.
