A video on Facebook has been released by the Syrian government featuring the city of Aleppo, but what caught the people's attention was their choice of background music.

The clip that lasts for one-minute was posted by the Syrian Ministry of Tourism on their Facebook page highlighting the other side of the war-stricken city. Interestingly, they opt for a mainstream theme song to go with it, which is the opening music from the "Game of Thrones" series, according to Time.

The video showcased the vast and healthy of side of Aleppo which is far from what people usually see about the city. The part of Aleppo shown in the video has no trace of any human-made disaster that struck the eastern Aleppo due to years-long war, the site added.

The agenda of the latest tourism video is to attract possible visitors by changing their mindset of the beauty that Aleppo have. Devastating things have been happening in the eastern part of Aleppo which caused a tremendous damage not only to infastructures but to its people as well.

CNBC published that the footage displayed different locations with greenery and their cultural architecture in sync with HBO's "Game of Thrones" opening tune. However, the site added, "no permission was given or requested" to use the said theme song, said by HBO spokeperson.

Despite this video surfacing the internet, travel warnings have been continuously being issued by countries around the world against traveling to Syria. CNBC reports, "The Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens against all travel to Syria and strongly recommends that U.S. citizens remaining in Syria depart immediately," published on U.S Passports & International Travel department's website.

Meanwhile, the British government expressed the same sentiments as U.S. does regarding any travel to Syria. "British nationals in Syria should leave now by any practical means. The FCO is not able to provide consular services, and won't be able to help your evacuation from the country," The Foreign and Commonwealth Office of U.K published on their site, as reported by CNBC.
