Shocking Satellite Photos Of Destruction In Syria

Raging for over two years now, the Syrian civil war has claimed over 100,000 lives and torn apart cities, towns and villages throughout the country, with Aleppo, the largest city in Syria, receiving an incredible amount of devastation. Last week, Amnesty International released a video showcasing stunning before and after satellite images of Aleppo’s destruction as a result of the Assad regime’s administering of repeated ballistic missile strikes. Rebel groups have tried to capture the city from Assad but so far have met only bloody defeat. Says an Amnesty representative, “The images are a snapshot of a population under brutal siege.” Directly below is a gallery of the destruction in neighborhoods Tariq al-Bab and Ard al-Hamra, as well as an overview of the damage inflicted in Aleppo beginning in November 2012, along with a video.

30 Incredible Images From Egypt’s Anti-Morsi Protests

The blossoms of the Arab Spring sure didn’t last very long. A year after his election, Egyptians from all over have concentrated in Tahrir Square–the same place where a series of mass uprisings ousted Hosni Mubarak from his presidency–to protest the Mohamed Morsi administration.

But even as children took to the streets and painted the word “Leave” on their foreheads in protest of the Muslim Brotherhood-touted politician, Morsi supporters also ensconced themselves in the demonstration fray. It’s uncertain what will happen next in the so-called centerfold of Arab democracy, but whoever assumes an ensuing position of leadership shouldn’t sit too comfortably; if the Arab Spring has proven anything, it’s that this new wave of participants has no problem giving ineffective leadership the boot.
