In a recent interview with former Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi, Abadi stressed that his country, which declared its victory against ISIS exactly one year ago, waged a comprehensive war against the terrorist organisation.
The Islamic State (IS) used its al-Bayan radio channel to brainwash the city's youth in Sirte, Libya. Now radio is a means to deradicalise the population and provide education. The Amwaj Youth Radio and Sirte Culture Radio stations are amongst these new radio stations.
A group of Iraqi war correspondents and journalists who covered the battles against ISIS formed their own association, the National Military Information Association, to defend their rights, which they said were being neglected.
