This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction in a portion of the city of Hama, Hama Governorate, Syria. Using satellite imagery acquired 05 March 2014, 26 September 2013, and 06 August 2010, UNITAR / UNOSAT identified a total of 4,976 affected structures within the area of this map. Approximately 4,492 of these were destroyed, 174 severely damaged, and 310 moderately damaged. The city-wide analysis of Hama revealed a total of 5,233 affected structures, of which 4,671 were destroyed, 216 severely damaged, and 346 moderately damaged. While most of the city was damaged by 26 September 2013, 308 structures were newly damaged and 6 structures experienced an increase in damage between that date and 05 March 2014.
