Three Russian journalists have been injured when their convoy came under fire of unknown assailants in eastern Ghouta, Russian media outlets reported on Wednesday, April 11th.
Quoting Russian Ministry of Defense, Russian media outlets said, “A bus carrying Russian journalists, returning from preparation for a story about the situation in Eastern Ghouta, came under fire of unknown armed men”.
The journalists work for NTV channel, Russia-1 channel and the official military television station of the Russian Armed Forces, Zvezda.
Media outlets added, “The journalists sustained leg injuries due to the attack. They immediately received necessary on-site medical assistance by medics in the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation. Their lives are not in danger”.
It’s worth mentioning that in 2017, four Russian journalists and a number of Russian troops had been injured by landmine explosions in Deir Ezzor.
