A philosophy for the restoration of Aleppo that will allow the people to come back

The destruction by ISIS of heritage sites in Syria has been well-publicized, but not as thorough as press reports might lead us to believe. In the case of Aleppo, this writer estimates that while 30% of heritage sites have been destroyed, 40% are in decent shape and the remaining 30% are damaged but can be restored. But how will international standards and policies regarding historic preservation and restoration be adapted to the needs of this severely war-torn city.
