Lorenzo Meloni
In October 2017 Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State since 2013, was liberated.
Lorenzo Meloni, who had been documenting the ISIL conflict for four years, returned to the region to cover the fighting in Raqqa, Kobane, and Mosul. Despite the victories over the Islamic State, civilians are still struggling to survive in Iraq and Syria's decimated cities.
