This damage assessment by UNITAR/UNOSAT provides a sampling of damaged areas in Tal Afar City, Iraq as of 4 July 2014 using imagery collected by the QuickBird satellite. UNOSAT reviewed the city of Tal Afar and surrounded areas for indications of damage and destruction resulting from conflict in Iraq. Results indicate a total of 352 damaged structures, including 74 destroyed structures and 278 severely damaged structures. Samples of destruction are provided in Figures 1 through 3, and Map 1 provides a summary of damage observed across this city. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Note that due to low spatial resolution of the satellite image used this is not a comprehensive damage assessment but instead highlights areas of significant damage only. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
