published 6 months ago by France 24

This month marks 10 years since what looked like another country in the region getting swept up in a whirlwind of pro-democracy revolt. But for Syria, it was the start of a conflict that has been dubbed the defining war of the early 21st century. We hear from a Syrian voice who has had to deal with everything from fleeing his country, to receiving death threats, to fearing for his family's safety –  all this for spotlighting the atrocities taking place inside Syria. Feras Fayyad is the director of the Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning documentary "Last Men in Aleppo".
