A report issued by the U.N. body known as UNOSAT counts 24 cultural heritage locations as being totally destroyed in Syria. There are about 300 sites damaged in the war-torn country.
The war begun three years ago has brought the most destruction to 7,000-year-old Aleppo where 22 sites are now gone, according to image analysis from satellites.
Sites experiencing severe damage number 107, and those with moderate damage 85, reports the LA Times. Among the damaged sites are the popular Carlton Hotel, the Aleppo National Museum and the Great Umayyad Mosque, which the U.N. said was founded in 715 A.D., making it one of the oldest mosques in the world.
