Syrian Kurdish YPG soldiers tenderly care for abandoned puppies at a checkpoint on the road to Tel Tamir, Syria on November 12, 2019. Smoke from burning oil is used as a shield from drones and airstrikes. Fierce conflict waged during an insurgency by Turkey after U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew troops, which was viewed as many as a betrayal of Kurdish allies.
On a personal note: After making this image I rescued four abandoned puppies and cared for them while working in the conflict zone. Later a rescue group assisted an international transport. One was adopted by an NGO in Iraq that helps ISIS displaced persons but sadly two passed away at a vet in Baghdad while waiting the required time for vaccinations to travel. One is now living in my home. Her name is Ayn Issa.
