Abdul-Ahad has covered conflicts in Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq for the last nine years — and he says he hasn’t seen such disorder and violence since reporting on Fallujah during the Iraq War in 2004. “In other conflicts, you meet people and then you hear they died after a few weeks, months, years,” he says. “In Syria, you meet someone in the morning and they die at the end of the day. As one of the officers was saying: ‘The only thing we have plenty of to spend is men.’”
