“Such crimes intend to target media workers and activists and prevent them from carrying out media work which exposes their brutal practices,” Darwish said.
“Leaving the victim’s dead body for three days is meant to terrorise other journalists and media activists in the first place, s well as the residents of the city,” he added. “These barbarians (in reference to IS militants) will not hesitate to kill and crucify any media activist who tries to convey the reality of their brutality.”
