This report provides an overview of the situation in the town of Aleppo as of 6 November 2014, using high resolution imagery collected by the Pleiades satellite and compared with satellite imagery collected 22 October and 10 August. In support of the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions 2139 (2014) and 2165 (2014), UNOSAT reviewed the town for indicators of damage and signs of ongoing fighting and displaced civilians. UNOSAT analysis indicates ongoing fighting in the city of Aleppo as numerous severely damaged buildings are visible in the neighborhoods of Ayn at-Tal, Owaija, Haydariyeh, Hanano and Al `Urqub. Few destroyed buildings located on Ba'aiedin neighborhood showed damages similar to those observed from air strikes or barrel bombing. Damage occurring between 10 August and 6 November is also visible in the district of Handarat. As of 6 November traffic is completely absent in the road that connects Handarat and Aleppo. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
