Syria’s Information Ministry says rebels have killed a TV correspondent who was covering clashes near the border with Lebanon.
The ministry says Yara Abbas, a prominent female war reporter for state-owned Al-Ikhbariyah TV, was attacked by rebels near the military air base of Dabaa in the central province of Homs.
The ministry’s statement Monday was carried by Syrian TV. It gave no further details.
Dabaa air base is near the town of Qusair, which has been under attack by government forces and members of Lebanon’s Hezbollah group since last week. Dozens of rebels, troops and gunmen have been killed in the heavy fighting.
