Drone captures devastated Damascus suburb in Syria
Drone footage captured the devastation to the infrastructure on Damascus’ outskirts, with images of the severely damaged buildings in the Syrian capital’s Jobar district released on Tuesday.
Footage shows the ghost-like area of the capital and the buildings destroyed by shelling, with only a few frameworks left standing. The Syrian Arab Army recently kicked off an operation to expand control over the Damascus suburb as government forces continue to make gains in the Syrian conflict.
Jobar, once an historical village on the outskirts of Damascus, it is now a suburb of the capital city. Today the district lies in ruins due to ongoing battles between anti-government militant groups and regular Syrian Arab Army troops.
