Hama, Syria, Nov. 12, 2018. Workers repair the old headquarter of the Ba’ath Party in the city of Hama, Central Syria. During the Syrian Revolution, the Syrian government forces and the Shabiha loyalist militia transformed the building into a checkpoint. After finishing the restoration process, the building will be one of Hama University buildings. Many Syrian government forces checkpoints spread in towns and cities of Syria, at which search and detention operations have occurred. Photo: Munir al-Abdo.
