Mourners carried the coffin of 25-year-old RT Arabic freelance journalist Khaled Al-Khatib through Salamiyah on Monday, laying to rest the correspondent who was recently killed in a bombardment by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL).
Al-Khatib was accompanying troops of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) while they were on a mission to liberate the town of al-Sukhna, in the... Еще eastern countryside of Homs. They came under fire near Bghailiyah village where Al-Khatib was killed by an exploding rocket shell, head of RT's Damascus bureau Abdelhameed Tawfiq confirmed on Sunday.
Al-Khatib had been working with RT since April.
RT's Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said RT would do its utmost to help Al-Khatib’s family.
