Idlib Interim - Challenging life without central government in the village of Koreen (Idlib Province, Syria)
Koreen joint the syrian uprisung to ouster president Bashar al-Assad at a very early stage in 2011. It has been scene of Army attacks and heavy shelling since 2012. In the course of the fightings the village of a few thousend inhabitants was almost abandoned as barrel bomb campaings commited by the regime pounded Koreen. But since regime forces retreated to few bases remaining in Idlib province people returned home to establish a new and almost unregulated economic, social and community life. The regimes power has no affect and can´t reach them anymore. On the other hand a new government isn´t established yet and not in sight at all. Koreen is free to make its way.
