Apr. 16, 2018. Like other free Syrians, Ahmed al-Khoja echoes slogans calls for reform and improvement of the country's conditions. He dreamed of a state where he is not afraid of it as a citizen that respected and adhering to its laws. He with a group of his friends also contributed to establishing coordination in the city of Aleppo, which is called for demonstrations against the Syrian government, in addition to the establishment of the first local news agency in 2012. al-Khoja, says upon his joining to the revolutionary movement: When the revolutionary movement began I was in the city of Qara in Rif Dimashq, my brother and I were working in a Cafe on the road leads to Damascus. Al-Khoja moved to Jabal al-Zawiya in Northern Syria to complete his revolutionary activity there because of the fear of his arrest, due to his participation in the revolution, his portrayal of the demonstrations, and his contacts with television channels. al-Khoja noted to SMART that “when we moved to Jabal al-Zawiya, Aleppo was controlled by the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which has pushed my friends and me to cover the entire battles. I lost many of my friends, whether by bombing or arrest.” al-Khoja said about his injury “'I was injured in the fourth month of 2015 when I was on a pictorial mission to cover one of the battles in the city of Jisr al-Shughur. After covering the battle, my friend and I went to the city of Drakush to see a children's festival there. Suddenly, as we watched a children's revolutionary play, a rocket fell in the middle of the festival.” He stated, “generally the FSA use the wireless grip to warn people of possible air strikes, but unfortunately they did not generalize it, which led to a large massacre.” However, for the moment of the missile fall, as he describes the feeling: "When the rocket fell, I felt nothing but wounded, and there was no pain. I was just watching the painful scenes around me, and hearing my friend's voice next to me saying, Ahmed, do not die. Al-Khoja says: Before the Syrian Revolution, I was married to my cousin. At the end of 2012, a shell fell on a building where we were living in the Bustan al-Qasr area in Aleppo ،this led to the martyrdom of my wife and my infant who is two months old, It was a great shock to me. He added "despite my mental and physical injuries, my life did not stop and what happened had increased my strength and determination. I was able to establish a new family, in addition to following my revolutionary work. Ahmed made a difference even though his work was limited only to his friends Working on the ground.
