David Patrikarakos on Covering War in Israel and Gaza

From an interview on cjr.org by Kevin Lind headlined “Q&A: David Patrikarakos on covering war in Israel and Gaza”:

In April 2014, David Patrikarakos, a British author and war correspondent, was one of the first Western journalists in Sloviansk, in eastern Ukraine, when the local police station was taken by a pro-Russian militia. Come July, he learned via Twitter that Ukrainian forces had taken back Sloviansk and sent the separatists fleeing to Donetsk, where Patrikarakos was reporting at the time.
