After unilateral declaration of democratic autonomies in Kurdish cities Turkish army attacked Kurdish resistance and with extensive use of force whole neighbourhoods were destroyed.

The satellite images of the neighbourhoods which Turkish army destroyed are now actual – dated the beginning of 2015- while the rest of the city’s satellite images are from the end of 2016.
