Drone Footage Shows Devastation in Damascus

Drone footage filmed on Thursday shows the extensive destruction in the Dukhania neighbourhood of eastern Damascus, as the conflict in Syria continues unabated.

Footage shows the devastated area of the capital including numerous buildings destroyed by shelling. The Syrian Arab Army has recently begun an operation to expand control over the Damascus suburb as government forces continue to make gains in the Syrian conflict.

The district has changed hands several times during the war, at one point being held by the Al Nusra Front.
