Unfortunately, war is not new to this area: Mosul lies on the ruins of the great Assyrian capital of Nineveh, once the world's largest city.  Its sacking in 612 BC killed thousands and was one of the most consequential events of ancient history. This video is a Finalist in the Drones for Good category in the second annual DVA's.

Gaza Strip: Great Return March

soliman anees

In this video, a drone pilot managed to capture the Great March of Return, a six month series of protests in Gaza, a strife-torn corner of the Middle East.  Captured by Israel in the Six Day War of 1967, Gaza was granted partial autonomy in 1994 under the Oslo Accords.  Since a takeover of the Gaza government by Hamas in 2007, it's been the scene of much strife as Israel sealed off the territory in response. This video is a nominee in the 2nd Annual Drone Video Awards' Drones for Good category.
