This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction in the city of Aden, Aden Governorate, Yemen. Using satellite imagery acquired 10 May 2015, 15 April 2015, and 31 December 2014, UNITAR-UNOSAT identified a total of 642 affected structures, 258 of which were temporarily assembled for a probable open street market. Approximately 327 structures were destroyed, 153 severely damaged, and 162 moderately damaged. Additionally, 38 impact craters were found within the city, the majority of which were located in the vicinity of Aden International Airport. A total of 13 medical facilities were identified within 100 meters of damaged and destroyed buildings, and it is possible that these facilities also sustained some damage. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
