A Syrian woman secretly filmed what life is like in Raqqa, which is currently controlled by ISIS. The content was shown on French television station France 2, and is one of the best looks the rest of the world has received of ISIS-controlled territories.

One of the most interesting parts of the report is when the woman filming visits an Internet cafe. During the scene we hear a female French immigrant who is explaining to her mother, via webcam, that she won't be returning to France, that her life is good in Raqqa and "all you see on TV is false."
