    He's seen first-hand the dire conditions facing displaced people stopped from crossing the Syrian border into Turkey. He's reported on moves to oust the leader of the Free Syrian Army, Riad al-Asaad, and witnessed a big battle between rebels and the Syrian government's Force 46 west of Allepo.

    Simmons has filed an exclusive report about the opposition forces' fight aimed at eventually taking the city of al-Raqqa. He also recently revisited a field hospital near al-Atarib where six weeks ago he reported on the inadequacy of medical equipment when two children under five years of age died in front of him.

    Now on the Turkish side of the border, Simmons will be online from 15:30 GMT, October 3, on Reddit's "IAmA" page - Ask Me Anything.
