“Last Western Journalists” in Eastern Aleppo

Last August, Clarissa Ward gave her famous impassioned “no-winners-in-Aleppo” speech at the UN, moving millions, yet failing to address the country’s problems or proposing solutions. Today I try to shed light on yet another Western journalist, Bilal Abdulkareem of On the Ground News, who provides an entirely different anti-Syrian-state perspective, namely a first-person narrator who tells us first hand about the insurgency’s demands and aspirations beyond the simplistic coverage of mainstream media.
