A ride through hell by scooter: A video tour through Syria’s most ravaged and ghostly city

It is a chillingly unique insight into the horrors of war, filmed by one man on his moped through the ravaged remains of Syria’s bomb-battered Homs.

The daring filmmaker zips through the city’s empty streets capturing the devastation that now covers every inch of this once bustling city.

It is now a ghost-town.

All that can be heard above the spluttering engine of the videographer’s scooter is the constant rattle of machine gun fire that echoes throughout his 10-minute footage.
