Syrian journalists are not only aiding the Syrian people and the Syrian Arab Army in conveying the truth to the world, which western and NATO propagandists work hard to conceal and spread their own version of events, the Syrian journalists are paying a very heavy price in the crisis by being directly targeted by NATO’s ‘Freedom Fighters’ for assassination and kidnapping to silence them, remember, anybody who is not Nusra Front is a ‘Shabeeha’.
Just now the Syrian ministry of information, the ministry in charge of state media has confirmed the martyrdom of TV reporter Yara Abbas in Qussayr, Homs Countryside today while conducting her duty in covering the advances of the Syrian Arab Army units in Dhabha town near Dhabha military airport in a direct attempt on the Ikhbariya TV crew by a group of FSA snipers.
Cameramen Osama Dayoub & Badr Awad from the targeted crew with martyr Yara Abbas were injured and are being treated in the hospital for their wounds.
Syria’s Ikhbariya News TV headquarters was directly targeted in an attack by herds of Nusra Front freedom fighters in the dawn of June 27, 2012, in Damascus countryside killing 3 journalists at least and 4 guards in an unprecedented attack sponsored by some Arab regimes and western officials who refused to condemn the attack.
Martyr Yara’s last message today 27 May 2013 before her martyrdom to Syria’s Ikhbariya News Channel:
A number of Syrian media figures were assassinated, kidnapped, and directly targeted throughout the Syrian crisis after labeling them ‘Shabeeha’ we can name a few: prominent Syria TV presenter Muhammad Saeed kidnapped with no trace since August 2012 when FSA pages showed him kidnapped and tortured, reporter Maya Nasser sniped by an FSA sniper while covering the attack on military staff building in Damascus, Hussein Murtada with the most attempts on his life by sniping, ambush and detonating cars in his office’s garage, journalist Ali Abbas the head of Arab News Section in SANA news agency, kidnapping the Ikhbariya crew in Tal Mnen whom were rescued by an SAA special operation.
On December 05, 2011 the European Union ministers of foreign affairs convened to come up with a decision that will stain their foreign policy & label them hypocrites forever. They decided to ban a number of Syrian based channels, namely Addounia, the private-owned satellite channel, Champress a privately owned website & Al Watan Newspaper a privately owned newspaper. And not surprisingly the Arab League, (a formation representing the governments of the Arab World, with the exception of Syria) issued an order on September 05, 2012 to 2 satellite management companies, Nilesat & Arabsat, sponsored by the League, to take down Syrian State satellite TV, Syria News another state-owned satellite channel & Addounia TV the private-owned channel from air, for no publicly stated logical reason.
