Dear Deeply Readers,

Welcome to the archives of Syria Deeply. While we paused regular publication of the site on May 15, 2018, and transitioned some of our coverage to Peacebuilding Deeply, we are happy to serve as an ongoing public resource on the Syrian conflict. We hope you’ll enjoy the reporting and analysis that was produced by our dedicated community of editors contributors.

We continue to produce events and special projects while we explore where the on-site journalism goes next. If you’d like to reach us with feedback or ideas for collaboration you can do so at [email protected].

Mahmoud Mustafa

Mahmoud Mustafa is a field ophthalmologist and the director and founder of Independent Doctors Association (IDA), a Syrian humanitarian organization that consists of Syrian medics who provide healthcare services to the population of northern Syria. Aleppo native Mustafa and his colleagues work to reactivate and rehabilitate health facilities in the opposition-held parts of the region in an effort to cover the health needs of people living in one of Syria’s most war-torn regions. Faced with the persistent attacks on health workers in the region, Mustafa and IDA are strong advocates for the protection of medical workers and facilities in Syria.
