Besides the omnivorous presence of IS and the often tragic landings of refugees, Syria now lies sadly forgotten, with its cities and its talented citizens. Damascus, perhaps the oldest city in the world, inhabited for 11,000 years by Mesopotamians, Arameans, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs. The ‘northern capital’, Aleppo, with its uninterrupted 5000 year history. Both UNESCO heritage sites. Along with Homs, Hama, Apamea and Maaloula to mention but a few.
