Living Under Siege 2 (Pt. 2)

Artist Blog by Mouneb Taim

The Eastern Ghouta region, adjacent to the Syrian capital Damascus, endured relentless bombings and siege for over five years. Both aerial and ground attacks persisted, ultimately resulting in the forced displacement of all residents. This photo, taken in the city of Harasta, a few kilometers from the center of Damascus, depicts unexploded missiles on the ground - highly perilous and susceptible to detonation at any moment.

Days after this photograph was captured, the area witnessed an explosion that obliterated the site, claiming the lives of over 180 residents. Intense airstrikes further devastated the location, wiping it off the map, and leaving nothing but complete ruins.
