Syrian Rebel Texts With One Hand, Shoots With The Other

Sometimes, you just have to send that text message. This Syrian rebel, photographed by C.J. Chivers, seems to be in that position.

According to Chivers, mobile phone services continue to reach the Syrian countryside, despite the war. The fighters apparently spend a lot of time texting and trying to figure out how to recharge their phones.
