The Ticking Time Bomb in Syria documentary explores the aftermath of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Rojava, a Kurdish-controlled region in northeastern Syria. The filmmakers investigate the dangers posed by ISIS prisoners, the radicalization of children in refugee camps, and the ongoing threat from Turkey.

Rojava on Edge: Unmasking ISIS’ Shadow

This hard-hitting documentary dives into the precarious situation in Rojava, northern Syria, following the defeat of ISIS. Two Kurdish journalists embark on a perilous journey, uncovering the lingering threats posed by the extremist group. They visit former ISIS strongholds and notorious prisons overflowing with ISIS fighters. The journalists also interview Kurdish military leaders determined to prevent a resurgence of ISIS.

A particularly chilling segment explores Al Hol, a sprawling camp housing over 12,000 ISIS prisoners and their families. The documentary raises concerns that the camp could become a breeding ground for a new generation of ISIS fighters.

The filmmakers don’t shy away from criticizing Turkey’s actions in the region, accusing them of destabilizing Rojava and potentially aiding ISIS escape attempts. The documentary concludes with a stark message: the world cannot ignore the enduring threat of ISIS, and the Kurds desperately need international support to contain it.

The Islamic State, often abbreviated as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), is a militant extremist group that emerged in the early 2000s. It aims to establish a caliphate, or Islamic state, governed by strict Sharia law, across Sunni-majority areas of Iraq, Syria, and beyond.

The group gained international attention in 2014 when it captured large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria, including major cities like Mosul and Raqqa. During its peak, ISIS controlled significant oil fields, infrastructure, and financial resources, which it used to fund its operations.

Under the leadership of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ISIS committed numerous atrocities, including mass executions, kidnappings, sexual violence, and the destruction of cultural heritage sites. It also carried out terrorist attacks both within its territories and internationally, targeting civilians and military personnel.

Since its peak, ISIS has faced significant military setbacks due to international military coalitions, including the United States-led coalition and local forces in Iraq and Syria. However, remnants of the group continue to operate in some areas, and it remains a potent threat, carrying out insurgent attacks and inspiring or coordinating terrorist acts globally.
