In 2013, the World Heritage Committee took the significant step of placing all six of these sites on the “List of World Heritage in Danger” maintained by UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre.

A number of reports summarizing damage to Syria’s cultural heritage have appeared since the onset of the conflict in Syria in 2011.

One of the most well-known cultural sites in Aleppo is the Great Mosque, which was founded in the Umayyad period and rebuilt in the 12th century with a Mamluk minaret dated to AD 1090.

By their date of inscription, these are: the Ancient City of Damascus (1979), the Ancient City of Bosra (1980), the Site of Palmyra (1980), the Ancient City of Aleppo (1986), the Crac des Chevaliers and Qal’at Salah El-Din (2006), and the Ancient Villages of Northern Syria (2011).Accounts of the conflict in Aleppo describe a conflict characterized by heavy fighting, widespread shelling by tanks and artillery, and numerous civilian casualties.Three images (Table 1) of Aleppo were acquired and analyzed to assess damage to the Ancient City (Figure 2).On 15 July 2012, the International Committee of the Red Cross characterized the escalating conflict as a “civil war,” a designation that has since entered into common usage in the news media.Since 19 July 2012, reports indicate that government and opposition forces have continued to clash both in and around the city.
