Award of Excellence

"The prisoners of Al-Malikiyah"

Al-Malikiyah, Syria, in the northeastern province of Al-Hasakah, which is under Kurdish YPG militia control.
A Syrian (centre) and a Turkish fighter (right), both accused of being members of the Islamic State Organisation, were captured on the Tal Hamis Syrian front by YPG militias- the Syrian equivalent of the Turkish Kurdistan Worker’s Party, PKK. They are confined in a prison formerly used by the Syrian Regime's Security Services.
