Assad forces leave Syrian towns in shambles

Like many other towns, Harasta, outside Damascus is left destroyed by government forces.

    The 22-month-long conflict in Syria has led to entire towns being emptied.

    Harasta, in the suburbs of Damascus, is one such town.

    Al Jazeera's Sophie Nicholson reports on the town once home to 500,000 people where now nearly everything has been destroyed and locals are left without basics.
