Eva Bartlett info - "Since 2007 I’ve been writing from and on issues in the Middle East, mainly occupied Palestine and in recent years Syria, fighting for its existence under a foreign war of aggression.
I am an independent writer and rights activist with extensive experience in Syria and in the Gaza Strip, where I lived a cumulative three years (from late 2008 to early 2013). I documented the 2008/9 and 2012 Israeli war crimes and attacks on Gaza while riding in ambulances and reporting from hospitals.
From Nov 2008 to June 2010 I stayed continuously in the Gaza Strip, doing solidarity work (volunteer) with fishers and farmers, coming under fire from the Zionists on the sea and along the border, writing about the criminal siege on Gaza. I finally exited through the Egyptian-controlled border, Rafah in June 2010, returning via Egypt to Gaza in mid-2011 and staying there, on and off, for another year and a half till March 2013.
In, my years in Gaza from 2011 until March 2013, I lived in a home with a Palestinian family near the refugee camp of Deir al-Balah, taking local public transport and enduring the same extreme power outages, lack of water and Zionist warplane flyovers and bombings.
Since April 2014, I’ve visited Syria 7 times, including two months in summer 2016 and one month in Oct/Nov 2016 and my latest visit in June 2017 (to Aleppo, Homs, al-Waer, Madaya, al-Tall, Damascus).
My early visits to Syria included interviewing residents of the Old City of Homs, which had just been secured from militants, and visiting historic Maaloula after the Aramaic village had been liberated of militants. In December 2015, I returned to old Homs to find life returning, small shops opened, some of the damaged historic churches holding worship anew, and citizens preparing to celebrate Christmas once again.
On my 5th visit in June-August 2016, she went twice to Aleppo, also visiting Palmyra, Masyaf, Jableh, Tartous, and Barzeh district of Damascus, as well as returning again to Maaloula and Latakia.
On my sixth visit to Syria, in October and November, she visited Aleppo twice more, as well as areas around Damascus. The testimonies Eva gathered in Aleppo starkly contrasted narratives corporate media had been asserting."
