About Us

Kom News Foundation was founded in the Netherlands by self-sustaining journalists in January 2017.

Kom News aims to report and shed light on the important but also lesser-heard stories, events and developments unfolding in, and connected to, the Middle Eastern regions and beyond.

Kom News, as the name suggests, endeavours to commonise information as a humble response to digital enclosures and monopolization, thus allowing non-commercial sites to re-publish and circulate our content by operating with a Creative Commons license as far possible.

Kom News strives to be a trustworthy English-language source by creating and serving quality content as well as providing a platform for a wide spectrum of independent voices of opinion. While we cooperate with local Arabic, Kurdish, Persian, and Turkish news agencies, we also collaborate with independent journalists in the region and we encourage others to join us.
