Syria had been a popular tourist destination, with ancient Aleppo as its jewel. As one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world until the foreign-backed terrorists invading the city and ruining everything.

Many of Aleppo’s historic sites, including parts of the Al-Madina Souq, a trading market that has stood the test of time since as early as the 14th century, have been ruined or burnt to ashes in time the foreign-backed terrorists and rebels decided to enter the city.

The ancient city’s stunning Citadel, which dates as far back to the middle of the third millennium BC and is considered to be one of the oldest and largest castles in the world, has also suffered significant damage in the terrorists’ invasion.

Syria’s foreign-sponsored conflict started in March 2011 and has claimed the lives of more than 400,000 people, according to an estimate by UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
