Where Childhood Died: Former Syrian child soldiers and their emotional scars (Documentary Promo)

In areas held by radical Islamists, children were made to witness and even take part in, atrocities. The Syrian Army may have chased the extremists away, but the emotional scars remain. Ali, who started digging tunnels for Jaish Al Islam in Duma when he was eleven, still has nightmares. His little brother, who saw beheadings in the public square, once cut off a doll’s head. Imad, who at thirteen was forced to become a hate-filled soldier and later tortured in prison, has attempted suicide

Fiercest ISIS offensive: Islamists cut off Syrian Deir ez-Zor airbase

Islamic State has launched a large-scale offensive against a key government air base in the Syrian province of Dier Ez-Zor. It’s believed the terrorists entered Syria from the Iraqi city of Mosul – where they had been fighting against a U.S.-led operation. Despite the Syrian army’s efforts, ISIL fighters have been making steady gains in that province, and have now effectively cut-off the strategically important government base there. RT’s Lizzie Phelan filed this report from Syria. READ MORE: https://on.rt.com/80l7

We must choose between Assad and Islamists in Syria – Marion Le Pen

Non-establishment politicians are on the march – with Donald Trump winning the election in America, many are predicting similar shocks across the Atlantic. In France, the presidential vote is just months away and the country’s right-wing National Front party is polling strongly. As the country struggles with a refugee crisis and the threat of terrorism, can a force like the National Front offer answers? Does its leader, Marine Le Pen, have a real shot at securing the presidency? And how would that transform Europe?

The Fight for the Muslim Vote: The British Election

Ahead of the UK general election on May 7, VICE News explores voter apathy within the British Muslim community and finds out if issues such as the country’s counterterrorism policy and Islamophobia are pushing young Muslims into disenfranchisement.

In the 2010 general election, a lower percentage of British Muslims voted than any other religious group. Despite being the fastest growing religion in the UK and boasting more young adherents than any other religion, it appears young Muslims are becoming more and more dissatisfied with the government.

VICE News speaks with Islamists who are rejecting voting and British society, those trying to get Muslims to vote, and those trying to win those votes. We meet with young Muslims to hear their opinions on the election and explore what influences them at a time when they are facing numerous challenges.

Life After Qaddafi — Libya: A Broken State (Extra Scene)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Three years after the Libyan Revolution and the subsequent downfall of its dictator Muammar Qaddafi, the country has descended further into chaos and insecurity. Rebel militias, radical Islamists and a former Qaddafi commander are amongst the different groups who are all vying for power and oil wealth. This has created a vacuum where violence and militancy reigns supreme.

Vice News filmmaker Medyan Dairieh was there in 2011 to witness the revolution. This year he returned to follow members of the 17th February battalion—a rebel group who fight under the umbrella of the Libyan Dawn rebel coalition, against pro-Qaddafi forces. Dairieh witnessed first hand how the triumph of the revolution has devolved into lawlessness and Islamic State linked extremism.

Trapped Inside the War Zone: Turkey’s Border War (Dispatch 4)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In mid-September, Islamic State militants launched an offensive to seize Kobane, a predominantly Kurdish town in Syria just across the border from Turkey. In the following weeks, Turkey closed its border, leaving thousands of civilians stuck inside the war zone and preventing Kurds in Turkey from coming to the aid of their comrades. Violent protests subsequently broke out all over Turkey as Kurds accused authorities there of supporting the Islamic State.

More than 30 people have now been killed in clashes between Kurdish supporters, Turkish authorities, and Islamists. In the town of Diyarbakir, banks and public buildings have been set ablaze and destroyed.

VICE News went to Diyarbakir to meet with the youth wing of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and discuss their involvement in the clashes. We then spoke to both the family of a young man who claim he was killed by Islamists, and to an Islamist leader.
