Massive Destruction

Caption: This is an example of massive destruction. On Sept. 9, 2012, (top) Aleppo's Karm al-Jabal district is completely intact. By Dec. 15, 2012, however, large areas of the district (outlined in red) have suffered extensive damage, one large multistory tower (red arrows) has been destroyed, and another (yellow arrows) has partially collapsed. Roadblocks and debris in the street suggest heavy fighting.
