Syria reports 

2017 - 2019

Seven times I travelled to Syria for Dutch public broadcaster NOS to report on the war and it's aftermath. The first few trips in 2017 and 2018 I went to Assad controlled areas like Aleppo, Homs and Damascus. I reported on the frontlines with ISIS in Yarmuk and saw in Douma how people slowly tried to build up a life again. 

In 2019 I traveled four times to the northeastern part of the country, where the batlle against ISIS was still going on. I reported on the fall of the last snippet of the caliphate in Baghouz and spoke with many Dutch ISIS men and women in prison and camps afterwards.
