This Is What Life Is Like Inside Assad's Syria | VICE on HBO 4
Six years of civil war has left most of Syria, a country once known for its ancient cities, in ruins.

On the battlefield, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s forces continue to fight a loose, and increasingly diminished collection of anti-government rebels. While in the country’s east, coalition forces have crippled a once fearsome ISIS, driving the group from its strongholds.

War continues to rattle much of the country, and peace remains a notion far off in the distance, but one thing has come into focus with each passing day: Assad isn’t going anywhere.

To see what life is like under Assad’s rule, VICE New sent Isobel Yeung to Syria just as the final bombs were falling over Aleppo.

Nice country nice people destroyed by politics

How ignorant is this reporter to ask those kinds of questions to the hosts on air, knowing that they could be killed if they answered honestly. I love how Vice goes into active difficult situations, but the bias in their line of questioning is frustrating and ruins these stories. Of course the government uses the media to push their agenda, as does ISIS, the Kurds, Turkey, America, Russia, and every other player involved in this madness.

It's so obvious that the people dont need US's "help". The US's purpose is to mess everything up and get their own interest. This journalist is very biased.

Look a woman waking around safely and without dress code and niqab, this is Assad's Syria.

Let her try to do that in ISIS territory or the so called "rebel" Al-Qaeda territory, I don't think so.

The Assad government is fighting for freedom and liberty against the Saudi backed Islamic terrorists, Assad may be a dictator but he is better than any of the current alternatives.

Author — Ali Asad


Lets's see her interview these "moderate freedom fighters" dressed like that. They would publicly whip her.

You should’ve titled it “Life inside Assad’s Syria under US and NATO air strikes”

A bit one sided reporting. Wish you could report more of the west involvement

Seriously? From the various international community hate assad? What a biased journalist!

Very funny
She was able to move freely because of Assad army security and still reporting against him
Only western media can do this

Why don't they send expert journalists on the ground who actually know how to ask questions and encounter facts instead of so many emotional aspects ?
