Syria: Cities in ruins, civilians in danger

13-05-2013 Photo gallery

These photos taken in April 2013 in the city of Aleppo and the town of Azaz show the scale of the disaster unfolding in Syria. Civilians who have not fled face a daily struggle for survival in the midst of the fighting and the rubble.

Widespread damage to infrastructure hinders the authorities' ability to provide basic services, such as rubbish collection and water and electricity supplies. In Aleppo, the build-up of waste is a serious health risk.
