UNITAR-UNOSAT analyzed satellite imagery collected 3 June 2016 by the WorldView-3 satellite over the ancient Assyrian City of Nimrud, Iraq. UNITAR-UNOSAT compared with imagery collected on 12 January 2016 in order to identify features in the image that verify reported destruction in the area on June 2016.
The results of the analysis show extensive damage over the area known as Nabu Temple, inside of Nimrud's Citadel.
The Nimrud Citadel is included in Iraq's Tentative List of sites which are likely to be nominated for inscription on UNESCO's World Heritage List in the future.
