The Syrian Coalition’s media office mourned media activist and journalist Ibrahim Alomar who was killed in Russian airstrikes on the town of Turmanin in rural Idlib on Monday.
The media office extended condolences to the Alomar’s family, his friends and fellow journalists in Aljazeera Mubasher TV channel for which he worked. The office stressed that Syrian media activists and journalists have been the “eye of truth” that convey the crimes of the Assad regime crimes and its allies against the Syrian people to the outside world since the start of the Syrian revolution. It added that many of those journalists have sacrificed their lives while exposing the crimes of tyrants against the Syrian people.
Alomar, a father of one daughter, was born in the town of Kafar Hamra in rural Aleppo in 1978. He was active mainly in northern Syria covering the conflict for Al Jazeera Mubasher TV channel.
Forty-five journalists and media activists were killed in Syria during the first half of 2016, according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR). The network said that 27 more journalists and media activists were abducted or detained in the same period, while 38 others were wounded while covering the conflict. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
