Nearly 5,700 Buildings in Ramadi need Repair

By John Lee.

Approximately 5,700 structures in and around Ramadi have incurred some level of damage since mid-2014, and almost 2,000 buildings have been destroyed, according to a study published by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).

Using satellite imagery collected on 29 January 2016 by the GeoEye-1 satellite, and compared with a pre-crisis Pleiades image collected 06 July 2014, UNOSAT analysis has identified a total of 5,696 structures affected, with 1,963 destroyed structures, 1,442 severely damaged structures, and 2,291 moderately damaged structures within Ramadi.

This is described as "a preliminary analysis" and has not yet been validated in the field.
