FRANCE 24’s Roméo Langlois was awarded the Bayeux-Calvados Video Image prize for his documentary on the Syrian conflict at a ceremony on Saturday evening.

FRANCE 24 reporters Roméo Langlois, Mayssa Awad, Mohammed Hassan and Marie Drouet gained exclusive access to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a coalition of Kurdish and Arab militias fighting the Islamic State (IS) group in Syria.

They witnessed firsthand the battle to take back the strategic northeastern town of Shaddadi in February 2016. Their extraordinary 35-minute documentary, ‘Interethnic coalition takes on the IS group in Syria’, includes footage of Western special forces on the ground assisting SDF fighters.

After ten days of fierce fighting, supported by air strikes from the US-led coalition, the SDF finally took Shaddadi on February 19, liberating its residents from the yoke of the jihadists.
