Omari mosque, Daraa al-Balad (13/04/2013)

Is a building worth more than the lives of people? No. But this building was a powerful symbol of Daraa and the birthplace of the Syrian Revolution. It was also one of the oldest mosques in the world, dating back to the early 8th Century. Therefore it breaks our hearts to see the destruction of the minaret of the Omari mosque in Daraa al-Balad today after being repeatedly targeted by Assad’s forces.
