This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction in the city of Sana'a, Sana'a Governorate, Yemen. Using satellite imagery acquired 15 May 2015, 12 and 31 December 2014, UNITAR-UNOSAT identified a total of 369 affected structures. Approximately 60 of these structures were destroyed, 72 severely damaged, and 237 moderately damaged. Additionally, three impact craters were found. A total of four 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.
