Brown Moses

A blogger known for his comprehensive monitoring of weapons used in Syria’s civil war, Eliot ‘Brown Moses’ Higgins has become a prime source of information on the munitions — from his home in Leicester, England.

His unparalleled curation is widely regarded as essential by experts, aid groups and informers. —Andrew Katz
