Today's Castle: Qalat ibn Maan, Palmyra, Syria

I post these pictures of the 17th century fort of Qalat ibn Maan, which looms over the Roman ruins of Palmyra in Syria, because the news is that rebels have taken up positions in the fort, engaging in gun battles with Syrian soldiers. So it may not be with us for much longer.
