A Syrian journalist has been killed covering clashes between government forces and opposition fighters in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor, a regional broadcaster said.

Beirut-based al-Mayadeen said on its website that its cameraman Omar Abdelqader was shot in the neck on Saturday and was pronounced dead in hospital shortly afterwards.

“We wish Omar had been martyred while depicting the liberation of Occupied Palestine, not in an Arab country where one brother is killing the other,” said Ghassan bin Jiddo, the head director of al-Mayadeen.
