This report provides an overview of the situation in the capital city of Damascus as of 3 November 2014, using high resolution imagery collected by the Pleiades satellite and compared with WorldView-2 satellite imagery collected 27 September. In support of the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions 2139 (2014) and 2165 (2014), UNOSAT reviewed the town for indicators of damage and destruction and signs of ongoing fighting and displaced civilians. Imagery shows widespread damage around the city and numerous destroyed and severely damaged structures and craters caused by munitions impacts (figure 1). Roadblocks were detected and vehicle traffic is almost entirely absent in the southern-eastern part of the town (figures 2 and 3). This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
