Object description

image: a view at night looking across a walled farm which appears to have been turned into a military camp with aerials erected in the field and trucks parked in the farm yard. The sky above is filled with patterns of smoke, explosions and anti-aircraft fire. In the foreground civilians and soldiers take shelter near the wall, next to two parked jeeps.
