‘When I was in the army, the army gave me house but they took it away when I left in 1988. After that, I rented a place. After the revolution I couldn’t afford rent anymore and I came here in November 2011. I live with my three sons, their wives, and children. There’s 16 of us in total. Bab Al Azizia's population is around 400 people.'

‘All of the people who live in the ruins of Bab Al-Azizia are good people. Many have seen a lot of suffering in their life but still persevere.’

‘I’ve been here for a year and a half. A lot of people started living here a year and a half ago. I’m a builder, but after the revolution I lost my job and I had to move out. Now there’s work, but it comes and goes.'

‘When we moved in, the apartment was just an open space. I built the interior wall and the window. It is now a decent place to live. The police never bother us, in fact, some times, they come around just to check that everything is alright.’

A video capturing a moment in the 'Battle of Qminas' when an artillery 23 gunner targets a commercial cargo plane owned by the Syrian authority. The 'North Free Brigade' is led by the Lieutenant Bilal Khabir, he and his battalion are trying to force out regime presence from the city of Idlib. The Syrian national army's stronghold in Idlib rests in the military camp known as 'Karmeed' (translates as "bricks"). From here the regime launches daily mortar rounds and missiles into various parts of the city. It is vital for the 'North Free Brigades' to defeat the regime forces in the camp in order to take over the city and "liberate" it from Assad's men.

DEIR EZZOR, SYRIA
Dayr Al Zawr, Syria
By Mais Istanbuli
10 Mar 2013

Two years ago a pro-democracy movement spread across Syria in the first heady days of the Arab Spring before turning into an armed uprising after Assad unleashed a brutal crackdown.

More than 70,000 people have died since March 15, 2011, a million fled the country and millions more are displaced at home and battling hardships for their very survival.

Deir Ezzor, a once thriving oil hub on the Euphrates River in eastern Syria, has become a practical ghost town.

Some 200,000 people of the original 750,000 residents still remain in the city, and the province of the same name is about 80 percent controlled by the rebels.

Assad's forces pound rebel positions in the city itself nearly every day with bombs and artillery.

In the city centre, the landscape is desolate. Buildings are riddled with the scars of shelling and gunfire, homes devastated, the streets covered with rubble.

Al Qusair Under Siege
Qusair, Syria
By Ghatfan Ghannoum
01 Jan 2013

"The Portrait of a Revolutionary City" –(Portrait madinah thaerah)- was filmed in the city of Al-Qusair before its fall based on interviews done with some prominent figures in the Syrian uprising. The film reflects the situation of the city back then. The characters are: the mosque Imam Abed Al-Sattar- the fighter Mohamad Raad from the Alwadi battalion that participated in most of the military operations- an anonymous sniper from Al-Qusair who is the character present in Alsinaa School in Al-Qusair.

The film was shot when Al-Qusair was being bombed under siege. During that period, a number of the regimes military checkpoints were taken by rebels like Hamed Amer and Al-Ghaisah checkpoints .The film tries to document a true, undistorted revolutionary vision of the people of Al-Qusair who protested for their dignity against the regimes brutality. The film as well tackles different perspectives of different kinds of people: conservative citizens, soldiers, and people crying over their martyrs in graveyards.
