Journalists targeted by both authorities and rebels in Syria: Amnesty International


It hasn’t been easy for several journalists reporting on human rights issues from Syria. They have been working in extremely difficult circumstances under the risk of getting killed, arbitrarily arrested, detained, forced disappearances and torture. The said circumstances have been present in Syria from the last two years. The said information has been shared by Amnesty International in a report released today which also happens to mark the World Press Freedom Day.
