Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham summons an AFP correspondent in Syria

Agence France-Presse correspondent, Omar Haj Kadour, refused to sign a pledge requested by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham; which says that he would not publish photos that “show a violation against him” again.

This comes during Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s summoning of Kadour after posting on Facebook a picture; showing that he had been subjected to a blatant assault by the group’s members during his exercise of his journalistic work on the 10th of June last year. And he wrote on the picture “On the World Press Freedom Day, this is the situation of Press Freedom in our country.”

In addition to that, he posted on his Facebook; “My press card was punctured as a first penalty for posting this photo.”
