VICE News: “The Syrian Ceasefire Is Held Together by an Unlikely Group of Frenemies — and WhatsApp”

New from me on VICE News:

It’s been clear for a minute that Syria’s ceasefire has brought violence way down nationwide. But I spoke to diplomats involved and Syrians on the ground, and it turns out that in addition to the overall reduction of violence, they’ve also managed to shut down specific ceasefire violations with help from WhatsApp and hustle. (I know, I was surprised, too.)
