Which city? and origin?

by

This is a beautifully made war rug which shows a cityscape with a distinctive bridge-like structure and buildings, with helicopters overhead and other signs of war material. It has extensively detailed end kelims and wide side borders, and a passage of uncoloured flatweave which runs across the base of the image. I’m hoping someone will recognise which city is being represented here, and from the detail identify its style and possible origin. Or could it be an imaginary city – a representation of a place far distant from the maker’s origins? Comments please.
