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.
