The story of a Syrian village destroyed by a space attack 13,000 years ago

Tal Abu Hurairah is a Syrian archaeological site, considered one of the most important sites dating back to the Middle Stone Age in Syria. It documents the transition period from transportation and hunting societies to settlement and agricultural societies.

Modern scientific studies have proven that the village of Abu Hurairah was destroyed about 13,000 years ago and disappeared within a few seconds as a result of (a space strike), believed to be the result of a comet explosion in the Earth’s atmosphere. It is also believed to have caused many disasters on the ground.

Comet explosion in Earth’s atmosphere also led to the beginning of a small ice period and the extinction of some major mammals such as mammoths. Scientific studies in the region began in the 1970s. These studies have shown that people settled in this village. Scientists have managed to find many traces that include building materials, food debris, and tools that the ancient man-made.

Scientists from the University of California at Santa Barbara have also found a molten glass between scraps of food, scattered old building materials, and animal bone remains on site. This is in addition to other evidence indicating that it formed at very high temperatures, much higher than what humans could have done at the time.

Even James Kennett – Professor of Geology at the University of California, Santa Barbara – says: “This heat can melt the entire car in less than a minute and it can only be the result of extreme violence, high energy, and apparent high speed, equivalent to a cosmic collision.”

Last March, The researchers analyzed the glass to know its geochemical composition, shape, temperature, magnetic properties, and water content. The results indicated that it formed at extremely high temperatures exceeding 2200 ° C and contains minerals rich in chromium, iron, nickel, sulfide, and titanium, in addition to molten iron-rich in platinum and iridium.

These results indicated the conclusion. As the researchers suggest, even “Tel Abu Hurairah” is the first site to document the fall of comet fragments in a human settlement. Scientists believe that it exploded in the atmosphere at the end of the ice age and contributed to the extinction of most large animals.
