A team of amateur photographers from inside Homs has published a YouTube video on Tuesday, showcasing destruction of the central Syrian city of Homs.
In the YouTube video, which Al Arabiya cannot independently verify, the group said there are two reasons for the team’s field work from inside Homs, and that is to document crimes by the Syrian regime and to help families, who fled the city, with their inquiries about their homes.
The team, which already has a Facebook page called ‘Lens of Young Homsi’, said it receives thousands of email requests from families asking them to take pictures of their homes to see if they were destroyed or not.
In the team’s attempt to take one picture to find out if a family’s home is still intact, the group sometimes has to take photos of an entire neighborhood.
The group said that the team is working to document crimes done by the regime destroying mosques, churches, historical places and houses dating back hundreds of years.
The team said that it is made from seven to 10 amateur photographers. Some photographers are located in the city’s section of Old Homs , and others outside Old Homs in Ghouta, Mala’ib and Munsha’at.
