IRIB reporters car comes under attack in Syria

Damascus, Oct 13, IRNA – The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) reporters were attacked on Thursday by Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the Syrian city of Al-Mayadin while they were in their car.

An informed source told IRNA late on Thursday that the car was carrying reporters of IRIB News Agency and News Network when it was attacked, but the reporters escaped unharmed.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, he said that the car has sustained minor damage with those on board suffering no injuries.

Located in southeastern Deir ez-Zur, Almayadin is one of the big bases of Daesh remaining forces in eastern Syria.

Syrian Army gained advances in Al-Mayadin on Thursday against the Daesh terrorist group.

Since March 2011, Syria has been gripped by militancy it blames on some Western states and their regional allies.

The Takfiri terrorists operating in the Arab country have suffered major setbacks over the past few months as the army has managed to liberate a number of areas from their grip.
