Aleppo, Syria

Aleppo, Syria a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of my top 10 cities in the world has been ravish by the civil war. The souk located near the center of the old city was destroyed by fire.  
"For many residents, the old city, with the souk at its center, is the soul of Aleppo, one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities and Syria’s largest. Aleppo has been staggering for months under a bloody battle that has reduced some residential areas to rubble, and with no deaths immediately reported from the blaze, the damage to the souk pales compared with the recent human toll."
