Saudi planes bomb UNESCO heritage site in Yemen

The city of Palmyra in Syria is known as a treasure of antiquity and a UNESCO heritage site. If destroyed, the world will lose the cultural heritage of not only the Middle East, but also of modern civilization, historians say. Today, the city remains in the hands of ISIS militants.

On Friday, Saudi warplanes raided Old City, a 2,500 year-old collection of homes, towers, gardens, mosques, and public baths in the Yemeni capital of Sana'a, The New York Times said. However, the Saudi military denied responsibility for the explosion. 

The explosion killed a number of residents and destroyed ancient multistory homes, towers and gardens. 

Below are the pictures of how the buildings look before and after the explosion.
