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.
These abuses have been perpetrated on journalists by the Syrian authorities and armed opposition groups. As a result of all this turmoil Syria turned into a highly dangerous country for journalists.
