The correspondent’s car was damaged by shelling, while the car’s window was also broken. When the shelling occurred, the journalist was standing near the car in the city’s district of Bhelie alongside officers from the Syrian army.
The districts of Deir Ez-Zor are shelled on a daily basis by the Daesh terrorists, outlawed in Russia. Last week, the terrorist shelling attack killed four civilians, and injured nearly a dozen others.
In late July, during coverage of the operation to liberate the town of al-Sukhna in Homs province, RT journalist Khaled Alkhateb was killed by Daesh rocket fire. His cameraman received injuries and was taken to hospital.
