Al-Manar TV announced the martyrdom of the colleagues and offered condolences to their parents
On the other hand, Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badr al-Din Hassoun said that Al-Manar TV is the beacon of truth since the day it started until today.
He said during a memorial ceremony that he was invited to by the Syrian Ministry of Media that al Manar crew went to convey the image of Maloula that speaks the language of Christ, because they are the owners of a message.
