Lebanon’s Al-Jadeed television channel reported that Syrian soldiers opened fire on a car carrying its crew on the Lebanese side of the frontier, in the northern Lebanese region of Wadi Khaled. They shot dead a cameraman Ali Shaaban.

Reuters reported that Shaaban’s colleague Hussein Khreiss said the shooting occurred after the crew had explained to the soldiers what they were doing.

“We told our Syrian brothers … that we are not military … but they opened fire heavily on the car,” the channel’s website quoted him as saying.
