Tunisian police and military forces patrol the border town of Ben Guerdane on March 8, 2016, one day after ISIS militants launched an attack on military barracks in the town. 28 militants were killed in the clashes that also left ten members of Tunisian security forces and seven civilians dead.

Tunisian security forces arrested 17 militants, reportedly connected to ISIS.

Later on Tuesday March 8th, the Tunisian Prime Minister said that the death toll had risen to 55, as security forces once again clashed with militants, killing six.

Global Refugee Crisis: The Worst Sinc...
By b.yaacoub
11 Jun 2015

June 20 is World Refugee Day.

In 2014, global refugee numbers were higher than they have ever been since World War II. In 2015, the problem has only gotten worse.

There are currently over 50 million refugees in the world and more than %50 of them are children. Approximately half of the world's refugees are from just three countries: Afghanistan, Syria, and Somalia.

The response to this massive international crisis has been limited, with most refugee aid programs desperately underfunded. Amnesty International has called the lack of robust international response "A Conspiracy of Neglect." With little help on the way, the future of the world's displaced remains uncertain.

Coalition troops from Holland, England, Germany, and America, Have devoted four weeks for training a specialized platoon of Peshmerga fighters. They were trained in close combat urban situations and offense tacticts to combat ISIS. They were updated in combat medical procedures and how to get their wounded off the battlefield immediatly to be treated. The photos consist of both the urban warfare training and live fire field exercises also the final graduation where the soldiers get a certificate from Coalition officers for there participation. The moral of the peshmerga during training was very high and the recruits were very proactive and responsive to the Coalition trainers. The bond was obvious between the Advisors and the recruits. There was a high level of respect shown to the trainers throughout the training and after their graduation from the four week course.

November 25, 2014

At least 95 people were killed and 120 injured on Tuesday in a series of airstrikes believed to be carried out by Syrian government forces against civilian neighborhoods in Raqqa, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The airstrikes caused large scale devastation in residential buildings and public squares. A mosque and the local museum were also damaged in the bombing.

Raqqa is the self-proclaimed capital of the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS.

An international coalition led by the United States has launched a bombing campaign against ISIS positions since September.

Eyewitnesses, however, believe that these airstrikes were carried out by the Syrian government’s air force.

The Syrian regime has repeatedly targeted the city with airstrikes since it lost control over it in March 2013

Palestine: When a School is Illegal
Khan al-Ahmar

Khan al Ahmar, West Bank, Palestine

The Khan al-Ahmar School serves the children of the Jahalin Bedouin community in the West Bank and has been declared illegal by Israeli authorities. It is now facing possible demolition. Built in 2009, the school was constructed with mud and tires due to a lack of funds and an Israeli law that bans Palestinians in Area C of the West Bank from building structures made of cement. The children now attend school in poorly equipped classrooms with no heating, leaking ceilings, and little electricity. However, it is possible that even this primitive learning environment could be snatched from them at a moment's notice. Over 140 students are currently enrolled in the school. The nearest alternative school is located about 45 minutes away by car. The school's imminent demolition is part of a plan by Israeli authorities to displace the Jahalin Bedouin living in "Area C" of the occupied West Bank. The Khan Al-Ahmar School and Bedouin community is located in the Jerusalem periphery, between the Israeli settlements of Ma'ale Adumim and Kfar Adumim. While the Jahalin Bedouin have a longstanding presence in this area (they settled in the area in 1948, after being evicted by Israel from their lands in the Negev desert), the community and school present an obstacle to Israel's planned settlement expansion and construction of the separation barrier. The community lives with the constant threat of displacement. Every year, the school administration goes to court in order to postpone the planned demolition of the school. This year they were lucky and the court sided with them. However, the order still stands and next year they may not be so lucky.

al-Araqib, Israel

Al Araqib is one of the 46 Bedouin villages in the Negev desert that the state of Israel refuses to recognize. The residents of the village, both past and present, inherited these lands from their fathers and grandfathers. Harassment from the Israeli Army and vigilanties has become commonplace for the Araqib Bedouin. The harassment dates back to 1948, when a gang of Zionist militants rounded up 14 Bedouin men working in a field in al-Araqib and summarily executed them. Since 1948, homes and properties in al-Araqib have been regularly destroyed and stolen. On July 27th, 2010, the village was totally demolished. Since then, the village has been re-built and destroyed 33 times. However, many residents were unable to stay and moved to the recognized village of Rahat. Those who did choose to stay are confined to the area of the Al-Turi cemetary and have been living under harsh conditions, always scared of an unexpected visit from the soldiers.

In exile: Iraqi women seek refuge
Bardarash, Dohuk, Rovia, Diyarbakir
By Arianna Pagani
24 Sep 2014

During the days of terror on Mount Sinjar, about 200 women were kidnapped by the militias of the Islamic State to be converted to Islam and sold in the occupied cities of Mosul and Tal Afar. This barbarism is not new to the chronicles of war.

The Islamic State's attack on Mount Sinjar led to the exodus of about 500,000 people, mostly from the Christian, Yazidi and Shabak minorities. These refugees, currently under the protection of the Kurdish militias, are living in the streets, under bridges or in abandoned places in Erbil and surrounding villages. Many of those who manage to escape the conflict have suffered losses in their family that effect them not only economically, but mentally and emotionally. Depression and anxiety in addition to insecurity are a constant challenge.

The UNHCR anticipated there to be over 900,000 internally displaced people in Iraq by the end of 2014. With the rise of ISIS, that number has been more than tripled, with 2.9 million displaced according to International Displacement Monitoring Center. The situation of internally displaced women, not only in Iraq but in conflict zones around the world, is especially precarious as the breakdown in social structures is a risk factor for gender-based violence. In their planning document for 2014, the UNHCR says it is ramping up its efforts to protect refugee and internally displaced women. However, agencies like the UNHCR as well as local associations can only care for and provide aid to so many displaced people, leaving others to fend for themselves.

The condition of the women and children displaced in Iraq is tragic: not only from a material point of view, but also from a psychological and ethical perspective. While talking with them, the elderly were crying because they don't see a future for their land, culture or traditions and were continuously asking, "What did we do wrong to deserve to be killed?" The women were mostly passive, trapped between emotions, tears, the inability to react, “deafened by pain and suffering.” They seemed to understand that as time passes by, the hope of returning to a normal and fair life fades away.

They lacked food and water; many of them suffered from starvation and some had become sick and died. When asked why they retreated they said that they received orders from the officers, with no reason given, to abandon their posts and were told to leave the border open for ISIL to enter and seize the abandoned weapons left there.

After bombings in Qaraqosh, the Iraqi government has decided to evacuate the entire town. About 5,000 families have taken refuge in the city of Erbil, where schools and sports centers have been made available by local volunteers and aid organizations.

A major city for Christians in Iraq, Qaraqosh fell to ISIS shortly after the latter's conquest of Mosul. Residents of Qaraqosh were reportedly terrorized by ISIS, who took Sharia law into their own hands, lashing one man for selling cigarettes, and killing several women found guilty of adultery. The city later suffered heavy bombardment during fighting between ISIS fighters and the Kurdish Peshmerga forces.

The army then cordoned off the area so the military police could conduct an investigation. This is the second suicide bomb in three days after a blast at an army checkpoint in eastern Lebanon, killed two soldiers on Friday.

My name is Madame Zeinab.
I have a shop called Al-Karawan in Omraneya.
We can sew anything.
I'm here by 10am and I don't go home until 12 at night.
I stand and cut.
I sit at the machine, and I iron.
I do everything by myself.
I got a sewing machine for my engagement
so I could help my husband and work.
He was a primary school teacher in Al-Azhar.
I have five children,
and their father has been dead for 30 years.
Nowadays most people just rent.
It's hard for a woman to buy when
she can barely afford to get married.
She can't afford the furnishings.
So why would she buy a dress for 3000 pounds?
A lot of people say, 'I want to tailor my own dress
to have as a memory in my wardrobe.'
Whenever she sees it
she'll remember her wedding day.
Whatever marital problems happen afterward,
when she sees the dress, she'll calm down.
I got married in a time when
people married at 18 years old.
Of course marriage was much easier back then.
Life was cheap and things weren't
as scarce as they are now.
A woman can't stay unmarried.
If she doesn't get married,
what will people say?
It's even better to get married and get divorced.
Then at least she can say, 'Yes, I got married.
But I have bad luck.'
I have a daughter who's a teacher,
and I have Ahmed who has a bachelor in commerce.
Osama has a diploma, and Mohamed
has a bachelor in commerce, too.
But because there's no work, one of them is
a taxi driver and the others do whatever.

This is what's stopping life.
Our hope is that this changes

Presidential elections are being held in Egypt between 26th and 28th of May 2014. Only two candidates are in the run: former army general Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and left wing candidate Hamdeen Sabahi.

Hamdeen Sabbahi’s campaign was not only underfunded but faced an uphill battle against the heavy favorite and former army chief, Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi. Despite the low numbers and resources, campaigners and supporters brought high levels of energy to Hamdeen’s events.

Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi's campaign was much better funded than Sabahi’s. The former general’s photos littered the city as campaigners and supporters sought to draw a connection between him, military presidents of the past, and patriotism.

The Day I Stopped Painting


The documentary tells the story of Khaled Omar, the 17-year-old graffiti painter who was killed in Port Said stadium among other 71 young people from the Ultras Ahlawy group in February 2012. It is believed that they were killed as a revenge for their participation in the Egyptian Revolution. The film follows the stories of the Ultras group before the 25th January revolution until the 30th June 2013 demonstrations, which ended the Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt.

On the walls of the houses and Metro station in Omrania, you can see the Graffiti painted by Khaled Omar.

Khaled's story is told through his family and friends. A mother who lost her young talented son, his brother who chanted with him in the stadium and shared moments of fun and joy, his cousin and colleague in Ultras who helped him painting Graffiti, his friend who went with him to Port Said stadium and came back alone.

Khaled died, but his Graffiti didn’t. His brother still redraws it so his colors do not die. He also continues, with Khaled's friends, painting pictures of him on the walls of the metro station and the walls of Omrania. They celebrated his 18th birthday with a big Graffiti in front of his house that says “Khaled, we won’t forget you”.

In many streets, Ultras Ahlawy members keep painting Graffiti of their martyrs, and sing. An Ultras song says "The day I stop chanting, I would be surely dead”. Recently they made T-shirts with a new song written on it after the massacre "The day I stop demanding your revenge, I would be surely dead."

We are the children of this country, this is our destiny, because we are Muslims. Do you kill us in our homes because we are Muslims? Is this something you would want to see?

I am 55 years old, I will keep fighting and resisting, and I will sacrifice my own blood for this soil and this land! This is our soil, these are our houses! He killed us! He killed our children! This is our country! You blame the Iranian and the Shiite and the Devil's party! We don't come from Europe? At least we don't belong to an organization.. Al-Qaeda. We are Muslims, children of this country! We have human rights!

Barrel bomb attack.. This is my house.. My three children are gone! This is my house.. We buried the three.. This is my house here, this is the barrel bomb shelling, this is al-Assad. We have a human right to life. Where are human rights in Europe? An animal has a right to life.

  • What kind of attack was it?

Shelling, barrel bombs, by helicopters, by barrel exlosives! My three children were killed here!

  • How many were killed?

Three! My 3 children are gone! We pulled their pieces from under the rubble!
