London – Al-Jazeera News Channel announced that one of its freelance reporters was killed during a Russian airstrike in northwest Syria.
The channel identified the reporter Ibrahim al-Omar who reported for al-Jazeera Mubasher and was killed in the town of Termanin in Idlib countryside, north of Syria.
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the number of people killed in airstrikes on Idlib reached 17, including 14 in Termanin. Yet SOHR could not identify whether the airstrike was Syrian or Russian.
Since the Syrian war started in 2011, at least seven al-Jazeera staff members and cooperatives have been killed.
