The most severe rate of destruction of Islamic cultural heritage can be seen in the city of Aleppo, where the most destructive conflicts have occurred and the greatest number of Islamic architectural heritage is hosted, said IRCICA Director Dr. Halit Eren.
Dr. Eren stated that they had prepared a report in order to record the destruction of Islamic architectural heritage and to contribute to the restoration of the monuments in question once the civil war ends and the proper conditions for restorations are met.
The report includes observations on the damage which Islamic architectural, cultural and historic structures have suffered. Eren added that Syria was one of the richest countries in terms of Islamic architecture and historic structures, but conflicts between opposition and regime forces had turned into a civil war which exposes, not only people, but also the art and architecture to violence and death.
The report presents the contrast between pre-war and current pictures of structures such as the Aleppo Castle, Umayyad Congregational Mosque, Haji Mustafa Mosque, Adliye Mosque and Mihmandar Mosque.
