Syria : Before and after the war

syria before and after war pinterest thoughts-notes

“All now stand in ruins, ravaged by a war that is not only killing generations of Syrians but also eradicating all around them, including sites that have stood since the dawn of civilization. Across Syria, where a seemingly unstoppable war is about to enter a third year, a heritage built over 5,000 years or more is being steadily buried under rubble.”

Here are some pictures before and after the war in Syria. Let’s hope that soon it will all come to an end.
