The Once Quiet Streets of Aleppo

Today, the news is that fighting has started in Aleppo Syria. This is a city street before the uprising began taken about two years ago. Aleppo is home to numerous souks that have been there for ages since the time that it was a stop on the famous silk road. The army had spared Syria's second largest city until now.

 

The picture was taken around breakfast time when the shops were just starting to open.
