                            Abdul Nasser Haj Hamdan

                            Journalist Abdel Nasser Haj Hamdan risks his life every time he covers an incident. He bids his work and colleagues a farewell once he heads to shelling sites. He believed that the press is a message to convey the truth to the public.
                            On February 20th, he went to cover the shelling of the Russian warplanes on Al-Naasan city, in the countryside of Idlib. He was involved in his work worrying about the fate of those who would be displaced and those whose families would be killed in the shelling. Yet, He fell victim to the ongoing war in Syria

                            Adeeb Al-Janani

                            On January 30th, Adeeb Al-Janani was doing his job, reporting the incident live, then all of a sudden; shrapnel struck him in the abdomen, the communication with his work, Belqis Channel, was cut off and instead of reporting the ongoing incidents, the anchor reported his death following the Aden airport attack.
                            Al-Janani was admitted to the government hospital, however, the shrapnel was heavier than the medical intervention that sought to save his life and it sent him to the hereafter, bare his journalistic equipment and being a witness to the horrific crime.

                            Ahmed Abdul Samad

                            Gunmen on the 10th of January opened fire on a car carrying Dijlah TV reporter Ahmed Abdul Samad and camera operator Safaa Ghali in Basra.

                            His colleagues blamed pro-Iranian militias. Before his assassination, Dijlah TV reporter posted a tweet about Iran, saying it seizes on every opportunity to expand its proxy war, commenting on what Tehran did after the assassination of Qasem Soleimani: it wasn’t surprising that Soleimani’s daughter has pleaded Hassan Nasrallah to retaliate her father’s death and the fact that she didn’t make this request to Khamenei. It is because Iranians told her to do so in order to gain sympathy. Hassan Nasrallah and some deputies were deceived which means that Iran wouldn’t miss a chance to exploit any opportunity for furthering their proxy war

                            He was therefore assassinated for his opinion in a country where armed factions are above the law

However, He couldn’t reach back home, as he fell dead by bullets of gunmen who shot him and fled.

                            Khattab thought that he isn’t crossing the red lines by demanding protection and freedom to journalists since he doesn’t call for a secret or terrorist organization rather giving free rein to the pens of journalists and enable them to utter a word of truth. unfortunately, he committed an unforgivable mistake in those countries.

                            Oshaya works for the online newspaper, The Citizen, and has been detained for publishing statements by the official spokesman for the National Salvation Front on a report he prepared about the mutual accusations between the Front and the government related to the violence in the Lobonock area.

                            Rashid Bakr

                            His camera wasn’t enough to protect him from a warplane missile that injured and killed him.

                            The Iranian opposition journalist, Ruhollah Zam, was unaware that his political perspectives would cause him troubles and that he would pay his life as a price for expressing himself on his news channel, broadcast on Telegram.

                            From France to Iraq, the Iranian authority lured Zam, as Revolutionary Guard declared and emphasized in a speech that Zem is one of the key figures in the enemy’s media network and psychological war. Observers viewed this as controversial questioning the involvement of Iraqi officials in Zam’s arrest.

                            His charge and indictment were ready, promoting corruption, and his sentence to death awaited him to be executed on December 12th, 2020. Zam was executed and did the freedom of expression that the Iranian regime considers to be a way to spread corruption.
