"Syrian forces loyal to Assad bombarded the historical Great Mosque of Aleppo where the opposition has been holding guard. As the uprising’s latest victim, the Umayyad Mosque (Great Mosque of Aleppo) has incurred great harm due its strategic positioning leaving it center to the fighting...."
It would appear to be the only mosque that I can find with a courtyard, the little structures in the middle plus the tower. In the pictures, one can see fires and damage done to the structure of the building. The damage isn't visible yet on the satellite pictures, I really wish Google Earth would update pictures of the region.
