Phillip Smyth takes us on a deep dive into the world of the Hashd al-Shaabi, the Iranian backed militias (also known as the PMU, PMF, and "Shia Militias") fighting in Iraq. They've documented their own war crimes, shot unarmed protesters, and have been building the groundwork for their movement for years...

The region of Idlib in northwestern Syria has been a fiefdom for jihadist forces for some time, most notably the al-Qaeda offshoot Hayat Tahrir al-Sham who rule about 60% of the region. Russia and the Assad regime are likely to launch an offensive on Idlib very soon, but with three million people living there and many unhappy civilians, it's not as simple as wiping out extremists. Sasha Ghosh-Siminoff tell us why the battle for Idlib will be a huge humanitarian catastrophe. -...

Young soldiers are killed almost every week and the separatist held regions are still under the rule of an iron fist, yet the media, both in Ukraine and internationally, seems to have forgotten that Ukraine is still at war. We got some updates on the current state of the conflict from Radio Free Europe's Christopher Miller, who's been covering the conflict from the start. - patreon.com/popularfront -...

In Cameroon a conflict between English speaking Cameroonian rebels and the French speaking Cameroon state forces is rapidly getting worse. Whole villages are being burned, civilians are being killed, and young men are forming militias. There's little coverage in the media about this conflict so far, so we spoke to the only reporter who's been on the ground with the Anglophone militias to find out what's going on. - patreon.com/popularfront - popularfront.co - @jake_hanrahan

They produced Sarin gas, they built their own assault rifles, and they even tried to buy bombs from the former Soviet Union.
