These three portraits are of journalists Joudy Al-Asmar, Ali Ibrahim Al-Moshki and Mouna Abdallah who participated in the debate “Journalism of peace at a time of war” held on November 15, 2018 at the International Assises of Journalism in Tunis. Joudy Al-Asmar, 29, is an independent journalist based in Tripoli, Lebanon. She is a member since 2017 of the group of journalists, bloggers and graphic artists Mashallah News. In her articles the young journalist addresses the issue of Syrian refugees in Lebanon, especially under the lens of women and children.
Ali Ibrahim Al-Moshki spent more than thirty hours crossing dozens of checkpoints to get out of Yemen where he lives and runs Yemen News radio. Since 2015, the capital is in the hands of Houthi rebels. In the face of threats, Yemen News directors, like other journalists, have left the country. Ali, barely thirty years old and father of a family, has chosen to resist and stay.
Mouna Abdallah has also seen her responsibilities increase since the beginning of the conflict in Yemen. The 35-year-old journalist and presenter is on the editorial board of the Yemen Times, headquartered in Sanaa, the Houthi-controlled capital.
