Hassan Palarak, who heads the Headquarters for Reconstruction of Atabat Aliyat (holy Shia sites), said the project for repairing the dome will soon get underway.
The dome was damaged in mortar attacks by Takfiri terrorist groups operating in Syria.
Palarak said the entrances of the shrine as well as the air conditioning system and power distribution systems will also be repaired by technicians dispatched from Iran’s Khuzestan province.
He went on to say that the headquarters is preparing a plan for development of the holy shrine which is being discussed with Syrian officials.
Syria has been the scene of a crisis since March 2011. The country’s unrest took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa who have shown no respect to religious sanctities and holy shrines.
