NSFW Al-Jazeera Reporter killed by SNIPER FIRE in Syria (vid)
[link to www.aljazeera.com]

A sniper has shot dead Al Jazeera freelance reporter Mohamed Al-Massalma in the southern Syrian province of Deraa, the Qatar-based media network has said.

"The Syrian journalist, 33, used the pseudonym of Mohamed Al-Horani. He was shot with three bullets, during covering the fights at the front lines in the town of Busra Al-Harir in the countryside of Deraa." the news channel said in a press release on Friday.

An Al Jazeera Media Network spokesperson affirmed that "targeting its collaborating journalists and crews will not change the editorial method and guidelines adopted by the network since it was launched 16 years ago for the sake of delivering the truth".

Before joining Al Jazeera, al-Horani was an activist in the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

Targeting journalists

He was the second reporter to be killed by snipers in 24 hours in strife-torn Syria.

THIS ^

Explanation

1st fighter ran across making the sniper to be ALERT, journalist is the 2nd runner, as soon as he starts running the sniper aims at him because he wont have much time to shoot him, at the end he hits him without knowing it was a journalist because of the short time span.

Now remember, the media will cover this as assad's army is killing journalist but remember the story i'm telling.

hard to say it is real, and even if it was real..... if you run randomly in a battle field you shouldn't expect the soldiers to take too much time to analyse if you are an armed rebel or just a reporter, not to mention its hard to prove the autenticity of the video.

On the other hand the fact that the guy was a rebel fighter before becoming a reporter actualy says a lot about Al-Jazeera parciality towards the rebel cause.

Yes it's not my conflict, yes, I dom't know how it actualy is living in Syria..... more like how thing were in Syria before the conflict ignited, but most people in this forum either. And I'm only saying this video doesn't convince me into supporting direct foreing intervention or air bombings from OTAN or anything.

Lies do exist.

5 shots with a sniper rifle to hit your target? Thats shitty marksmanship.

Sad either way.

They should have been running two at a time. So the first group wouldn't get stranded on the other side of the road alone.

If they were equipped better they would have popped smoke.

There was no way knowing what was going too happen. Unless they spend all day waiting for the sniper to get bored so they could run across. Which is dangerous because they would have been flanked.

This is war. A vest won't stop a 7.62mm round. And even if you did have a vest that could stop the round you would still fall in the middle of the street and get shot until you died.

What did we learn here? That's right people....1) don't be the second person to run as the first guy wakes up the sniper, and 2) wear body armor and don't jog across the street.


Feel for the guy but natural selection was just video taped.
