Ahmad Al-Hanini, a media activist from Kafr Nabl, once a rebel-held area in southern Idlib rural- gathered a collection of pictures of the city that he took before and after its destruction in a handbook to distribute publicly.

“After the regime captured my city after destroying its home and streets, the idea sparked in my head as I have an old archive of the city and its charming nature, traditional shops and famous fig and olive trees,” the activist said

The album also documents the deliberate target of the city’s districts, markets, and mosques which were unarmed harmless targets.

The album aims to maintain the memory of the city’s history and save it from being manipulated and for the future generations to see how their city once was and who and what happened to their homeland.
