Corona Atlas of the Middle East

Yesterday I discovered the CORONA Atlas of the Middle East where you can look at old spy satellite images. The images below show Duhok city in 1967 and the same area, approximately 40 years later. Things have certainly changed. There was no Duhok dam in 1967 and Duhok city was not really a city.
