Earlier, Tartous governor and al-Baath Party Secretary visited the tomb of Sheikh Saleh Al Ali and laid a wreath of flowers, and visited the museum that contains some of the precious possessions of Sheikh Al Ali. The exhibition displayed a total of 65 art works by 26 artists, with the topics varying between nature, folklore and the sublime meanings of the Independence Day. Poems by 7 poets were recited during the festival that extolled the concept of independence. The festival, which lasts until Wednesday, showcases a unique cultural mixture of art and folklore exhibition, poetry symposiums, musical concerts and open dialogue sessions. Sheikh Saleh Al Ali, who was born in 1884 in al-Sheikh Bader area on the Syria coast, was a prominent leader who commanded the Syrian revolt against the French occupying forces. The Evacuation (Independence Day) is Syria's national day that commemorates the evacuation of the last French soldier and Syria's proclamation of full independence.
