This map illustrates satellite-detected damage density in the subdistricts of Kafr Batna and Irbin and in the eastern part of Damascus city, Syrian Arab Republic. Using satellite imagery acquired 3 December 2017 and 2 April 2016, UNITAR - UNOSAT identified a total of 12,541 affected structures. Approximately 3,853 of these were destroyed, 5,141 severely damaged, and 3,547 moderately damaged. Comparison with the previous UNOSAT analysis using imagery from 2 April 2016 shows an overall increase of 6% in the number of damaged buildings since 2016. The areas with a higher increase in the percentage of damage are Ein Tarma (14% increase), Hammura (15% increase) and Kafr Batna (17 % increase). Moreover, approximately 7% of the buildings damaged as of April 2016 have been targeted again and suffered additional damage. The majority of these buildings are located in Ein Tarma, Jobar and Al Maamouniye. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
