10 Before-And-After Photos Show How War Devastated Syria

Posted on Other Stuff 276

One of the oldest cities in the world and the largest in Syria, Aleppo fell victim to the horrors of the country’s civil war.

Once a bustling hub for eastern culture, Aleppo has been destroyed almost beyond recognition in only 4 years. The Syrian army used barrel bombs, not only destroying the city but also taking thousands of lives and relocating even more of the city’s inhabitants.

The Old City Of Aleppo – a UNESCO World Heritage site – is now an empty shell of what it once was, a fact that is sadly illustrated by these photos showing city’s landmarks before and after the war.
