The Battle of Damascus

It’s a long road to Damascus for France 24’s reporters. When they went into Syria last month with the rebels, they found danger and a lot of determination on both sides. But is fighting the only solution? François Picard’s panel is of two minds.

  • Sofia AMARA. Senior Reporter;
  • Haytham MANNA. President, National Committee for Democratic Change;
  • Radwan ZIADEH. Member, Syrian National Council (from Washington DC);
  • Ole SOLVANG. Human Rights Watch Phoner (from Aleppo, Syria).

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Shamira Muhammad.

Watch the second part here.
