The recent uproar over 'fake news' in the so-called 'Western world' is not new to observers of the ongoing Syrian conflict. For years, participants have fought a physical war as well as one over competing claims of 'truth'. This presentation will uncover some of these competing claims from the perspective of an observer, analysing how truth is manipulated and for what purpose, as well as its consequences on how we research and understand conflicts in the digital age.
