Paris, June 22 (IANS/AKI) Six historical sites in Syria including mosques, citadels and souks are in peril because of the country's civil war, the UN cultural agency has said.
Aleppo's old city, in particular, has "witnessed some of the conflict's most brutal destruction," Unesco said, adding that the old citadel was "caught in the line of fire".
The security situation has left Syria's archaeological sites susceptible to damage. Illicit trade in Syria's rich archaeological heritage has flourished during the two-year war between rebels and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.
