Syria’s largest city, Aleppo has been one of the hardest-hit areas of the nation since the Battle of Aleppo in 2012. In a series of photographs, which we have provided below, you can see exactly how much a once vibrant city has been affected by war’s devastation.
In this series of photos, you will see twenty-five before and after shots of various locations. Many of them depict areas that were considered historical by the nation at one point in time. Unfortunately, due to the tragic civil war that has transpired since 2012, these locations no longer exist.
The photos were posted by the Olympia Restaurant, which calls Aleppo its home. In the images, you can see the story of what was before, and what came after the beginning of the drum beat of war. Many locations that were once ancient artifacts of a beautifully historical location have now been reduced to nothing but rubble and destruction.
