How Not to Cover the Fight Against the Islamic State

Early this year, a ten-day riot broke out inside a prison located in the Northeast of Syria, which holds thousands of Islamic State (IS) detainees. The prison is run by the Autonomous administration of North and East Syria and controlled by its military, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Staff writer Johannes Malmgren highlights the role of international media to avoid simplifying it as an ethnic conflict between the IS and the SDF.
