Six ancient sites in Syria were on Thursday added to the list of endangered World Heritage, UNESCO said, including the city of Aleppo which has suffered considerable damage since a revolt started in March 2011.

The other sites are the ancient cities of Damascus and Bosra, the oasis of Palmyra, the castles of Crac des Chevaliers and Qal'at Salah El-Din, and the ancient villages of northern Syria.
