We traveled to Al Hol camp in northeast Syria

to meet wives of ISIS fighters held there.

 

With fewer Kurdish-led forces guarding the camp

because of the U.S. withdrawal and the Turkish invasion,

the question of what will happen

to these women and their children

becomes more pressing than ever.

Someone Else's War - when your child joins the war against Isis        Video        The Guardian        5 April 2019

 

To date at least 20 British nationals,

some with no previous experience of combat,

have travelled to Syria to fight Isis on the frontline.

 

Eight of these Brits have lost their lives.

 

This film follows the journeys of parents

as they investigate why their children went out

to join the Kurdish army in their fight against Isis,

including visiting the places they died in Syria.

 

What led these young Brits to risk everything,

travelling thousands of miles from home

to wage war against the world’s

most feared terrorist organisation,

fighting someone else’s war?

7 Days in Syria: How a Trump Decision Led to Total Chaos        Video        NYTimes        17 October 2019        GRAPHIC VIOLENCE

 

On Sunday Oct. 6,

President Trump

announced that Turkey would move forward

with an offensive in northeast Syria

after U.S. troops pulled out of the area.

 

Since then,

American-allied Kurdish forces have been under attack,

over 200,000 people have been displaced

and the threat of ISIS’s resurgence looms.

 

Our video traces how we got here in just one week.

President Trump

has ordered the withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Syria.

 

But the unexpectedly large role of Al-Tanf,

a small U.S. outpost in Syria,

reveals why leaving the country won’t be so easy.

Syrian officials say there wasn’t a chemical attack.

 

But what really took place in the town of Douma in April?

We analyzed 67 videos to reconstruct

how at least 34 people died in one apartment building.

Why I left my city job to fight Isis - Macer Gifford | Comment is Free        Video        The Guardian        15 July 2015

 

Islamic State left Macer Gifford angry and disgusted.

 

Like many in the UK,

as he watched Isis grow in power

during 2014.

 

But unlike most other Britons,

he decided to leave his job

and fly to Syria

to join the fight on the ground.

 

He argues that the British government

has let down the people of Syria and Iraq,

and calls for them to increase bombing raids

and further arm the resistance.

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife, evacuations of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have one very basic question

that you can't easily find an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps

and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great

to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com

lets you do just that.
