Contest #263 answer: Al-Madina souq, Aleppo, Syria

Well, what can I say. It is total mayhem out there.

Of course it is to regret that another UNESCO World Heritage Site is demolished -as stated by UNESCO Director General Irina Bobkova– but for the people living there, the situation must be unbearable.

The Souq Al-Madina is/was the the largest covered ancient market in the world, with around 13 kilometres of alleyways.
