Nearly 19 months of violence in Syria have left their mark everywhere: Entire blocks of apartment buildings have been shattered, their top floors reduced to pancaked concrete. Centuries-old markets have been gutted billions of dollars along with an irreplaceable chunk of history wiped out in just few hours of battle. Oil pipelines, factories, schools, hospitals and churches and mosques have been systematically destroyed. (AP Photo/SANA, File)
