History of Revival of Halab (Aleppo)

540 CE - Aleppo was pillaged and burned to the ground by the Persian Sāsānian king Khosrow I. 

962 CE - Aleppo was besieged and pillaged by the Byzantine army of Nicephorus II Phocas. Sayf alDawlah the Muslim leader rebuilt it & Aleppo relived in glory anew.

1138 CE - Earthquakes destroyed large portions of Aleppo. Nur alDin Zinki came & rebuilt it from the ground.

1260 CE - The Tatar Mongols led by Hulaku took Aleppo. He massacred its inhabitants & pillaged the city. The Mongols were soon ejected from Syria by the Mamlūks of Egypt. The city continued to suffer, enduring an outbreak of plague in 1348 CE and a devastating attack by Timur in 1400 CE.

1822 CE & 1830 CE - just 200 years ago, 1/3 of Aleppo's inhabitants were killed & its buildings destroyed in 2 major earthquakes.

& in 1979 CE - Bashar al Assad's father, Hafiz alAssad sieged Aleppo & people were rounded up & over 2000 massacred even after Eid al Fitr holiday.

After all of this. 

Halab (Aleppo) returned.
