A graphic drone video of a derelict Syrian neighbourhood has emerged, showing unique images of a landscape ravaged by civil war .
It shows the havoc inflicted on the district of Jobar, with few of its buildings remaining intact.
Jobarb is a suburb lying to the east of Damascus, and has been occupied by rebels for several years.
The video, which has been viewed 133,000 times, depicts a ghost-like town containing the rubble of apartment blocks and houses, most containing huge craters.
Several structures have had their top floors blown away by bomb blasts.
A plume of black smoke fills the screen, as relentless air strikes are carried out by what appear to be Syrian warplanes.
Tanks can be seen conducting non-stop shelling on a residential street.
Syrian troops have been battling rebels since 2013.
The drone recording was carried out by war correspondent Yevgeny Poddubny.
