Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad was among the officials that came to RT's headquarters in Moscow, Tuesday, to honour the 25-year-old RT Arabic freelance journalist Khaled Al-Khatib, who was killed by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL).
Haddad offered his condolences to the family and friends of Al-Khatib, saying that the journalist was a «fallen hero» who had... Еще «succeeded in working in many hot spots» and «who gave his life for a just cause.»
Al-Khatib was accompanying Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops during an operation to liberate the town of al-Sukhna in the eastern countryside of Homs. They came under fire near Bghailiyah village where Al-Khatib was killed by an exploding rocket shell, with head of RT's Damascus bureau Abdelhameed Tawfiq confirming the news on Sunday.
