  • Over 13,500 mosques destroyed in Syria

    According to a report by the Syrian Network for Human Rights, 1,400 mosques were destroyed in the years between 2011- 2013, while 13,000 were flattened since 2013




    Almost 39 percent of Syria’s mosques were rendered unusable after they were targeted by shelling from the U.S., Russia and the Assad regime, while 4.7 million refugees of the 13 million displaced due to the raging civil war were forced to celebrate Eid in camps and 107,000 arrestees observed the Islamic feast of the sacrifice in detention centers and prisons across the war-torn county.

    No place of worship left standing

    According to a 2017 report by the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR), no mosques had escaped damage in opposition-held towns and villages in Aleppo, Deir Ezzor, Hama, Damascus, Raqqa, Idlib and Homs.

    According to the report, 1,400 mosques were destroyed in the years between 2011- 2013, while 13,000 were flattened since 2013.

    Underground mosques were established in several areas which were abandoned upon edicts, or fatwas, issued as worshippers were targeted as they performed Friday prayers in mosques across Syria.






    Historical mosques were not spared

    Several historical mosques were targeted by shelling in Syria such as the mosques of Khalid Ibn al-Walid in Homs, Masjid Zakaraya in Aleppo and Daraa’s Omar Ibn al-Khattab mosque.

    The Ottoman-era Adliye Mosque in Aleppo’s Old City and the Seljuq-era Qishla Mosque in the Hanano district were turned to rubble.

    Throughout 7 years of war, 9,500 mosques were destroyed in urban centers, while the remaining 4,000 are located in rural regions across Syria.

    Eid in damaged mosques

    Eid prayers in opposition-held cities were held in partly-damaged mosques since the majority were destroyed in shelling.

    For the 5 million Syrian refugees forced to live in camps, Eid prayers were held in tent mosques.

    Over 30 churches and a number of synagogues are among the places of worship destroyed in the war in Syria.
