Arwa Damon is a Senior International Correspondent based in CNN’s Istanbul bureau. As one of the network’s Middle East specialists, Damon frequently reports from conflict zones across the Middle East and North Africa region, often focusing her work on humanitarian stories. Damon’s coverage has latterly focused on the fierce fighting in Iraq between militant Islamist group ISIS and the Iraqi national army and associated paramilitary groups. Her reporting has proven essential, guiding viewers through the complexities of the bloody and ongoing conflict. In 2018 she won a prestigious George Foster Peabody Award for her reporting on the fall of ISIS in Iraq and Syria and three Emmys for her coverage in Iraq and Syria. On top of this, she also launched a non-profit organization, International Network for Aid, Relief, and Assistance (INARA), based on her personal experience in war zones and war-torn nations.
