Sheikh Najjar, an industrial city spanning 4,400 hectares, is part of the Industrial heartland of Syria. Before the war, it accounted for 40% of the country’s GDP.
Western terrorists have targeted Syria’s industrial base since the beginning of the war, stealing what they could, and destroying everything else.
