The Destruction Caused By the War in Syria Is Devastating

Video: Russia Works shot this aerial footage of Homs, Syria and the city, which was the third largest in the country and once home to a population of over 800,000, has been completely destroyed. Buildings and homes have turned to rubble, the city look like the aftermath of the apocalypse, and the people have disappeared. It is so tragic to see.

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.
