Al-Nusra front arrests pro-opposition TV correspondent in Reef Damascus

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists arrested the reporter of a pro-opposition television network in Reef (countryside of) Damascus in Southern Syria on Saturday.

Mohammad Al-Zahouri, the reporter of the pro-opposition Orient TV, has been arrested by the Al-Nusra Front for broadcasting footages which showed the Al-Nusra’s operations in An-Nabak town in Reef Damascus which ended in the terrorist group’s defeat.

Orient TV is affiliated to the Syrian opposition and the arrest of its reporter shows that the differences among opponents of the Syrian government is increasing as the crisis in the Muslim country remains unresolved.

Last week, the Syrian army killed tens of militants, including two notorious commanders, in An-Nabak.

Abdolkarim Sharideh, commander of Lava Ebad Al-Rahman Battalion, and Ahmad Tayareh, commander of Lava Moqavir Al-Qalmoun Battalion were killed in heavy clashes with the Syrian army troops on An-Nabak-Al-Rahibeh road in Reef Damascus. Tens of armed rebels were also killed and dozens more injured in the clashes.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
