This report provides an overview of the situation in the town of Douma in Damascus, Syria as of 29 August 2015, using high resolution imagery collected by the Pleiades satellite and compared with satellite imagery collected 28 December 2014.

Several destroyed buildings located in the city center showed damages similar to those observed from air strikes or barrel bombing. As of 29 August traffic is completely absent in the city y center and numerous roadblocks are visible in the main roads. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
