The Destruction Caused By the War in Syria is Devastating

By Casey Chan on at

Russia Works shot this aerial footage of Homs, which shows the Syrian city, which was the third largest in the country and once home to a population of over 800,000, having been completely destroyed. Buildings and homes have turned to rubble, the city looks like the aftermath of the apocalypse, and the people have disappeared.

The footage is so devastating that you almost hope that it was a movie set or a video game or something that wasn’t real life. Just a few years ago, all those buildings and those streets looked like any other normal city. Compare the before and after pictures here.
