BACK
 

Abdel Aziz Al-Hamza and Hussam Alissa are part of the group of citizen journalists who founded the award-winning news platform Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently after ISIS took control of the city and declared it the capital of its self-proclaimed caliphate. Under grave danger they continued to provide a window into the daily lives of the people who lived in the city and to report on ISIS’s activities at a time when it was too dangerous for foreign journalists to enter Syria. Many among them were killed. But this group of young people courageously continued their work. They were awarded the International Press Freedom Award in 2015.
