This map illustrates satellite-detected damage to infrastructure and roads in the city of Ar Raqqa, Syrian Arab Republic and is derived from a full UNOSAT analysis of damage to Ar Raqqa in 2017. Using satellite imagery acquired 21 October 2017, UNITAR - UNOSAT identified 5 destroyed bridges, 74 damaged road segments and 94 visible impact craters affecting roads. Approximately 159 structures corresponding to educational facilities, and 26 structures likely related to health facilities are also affected. UNOSAT analysis shows that 8 water towers are completely destroyed and there is damage to one electric substation and a sewage treatment facility. Note that sources of infrastructure data include various open source datasets which are likely incomplete, as well as visual review of satellite imagery by UNOSAT for certain features like water towers. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
