Aleppo Media Centrehas sent the internet reeling with some devastating images. The media organization flew a drone over eastern Aleppo to reveal the complete destruction of the Al-Shaar district.

In recent years, the city has been divided into the West, held by troops loyal to Bashar al-Assad, and the East, controlled by rebel groups, most of which are Sunni.

The video shows demolished buildings and streets filled with rubble, revealing how Aleppo has become the focus of some of the most intense fighting in this war.

Several air forces have bombarded the suburbs of the city over recent days. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, rebels tried to advance towards the west of Aleppo on 12 November, resulting in even more catastrophic consequences for the Syrian city.

Government and Russian forces spent September bombarding eastern Aleppo – an area populated by 275,000 people, according to the United Nations.
