Before and after: Syrian war and its devastation | Updated: 2018-04-17 07:55

Editor's note: A series of explosions rocked Syria just after 4 am Saturday, as US-led military strikes began in Damascus.

Let's look at sharply contrasting photos of how cities of Syria have changed before and after war began, and how their people have suffered.

Damascus' skies erupt with surface-to-air missile fire as the US launches an attack targeting different parts of Syrian capital Damascus on Saturday, April 14, 2018. Syria's capital was rocked by loud explosions that lit up the sky with heavy smoke, as US President Donald Trump announced airstrikes in retaliation for the country's alleged use of chemical weapons.
