Men in camouflague fatigues walk down a street lined with rubble from destroyed buildings.

Soldiers walk past damaged buildings in Yarmouk Palestinian camp in Damascus, Syria, in May 2018. Satirist Jiim Siin, who grew up in Damascus, is creating audio dialogues online mimicking conversations that everyday Syrians should be having about their country but often can't. "Satire allows me to take a distance from what is happening and it allows me to shed light on things which may be very complex to write about," he says.
