Ankara: Naji Jerf, a prominent Syrian journalist and filmmaker, who had exposed the atrocities committed by the Islamic State in Aleppo through a series of documentaries, was shot dead by unknown assailants in broad daylight in Gaziantep, Turkey.
That is the third assassination of a journalist during the last three months in Turkey.
Naji Jerf, the editor-in-chief of the Hentah monthly, was acclaimed for his documentaries describing violence and abuses on Islamic State-controlled territories in its stronghold Aleppo.
As per reports, Naji Jerf was killed close to a building housing Syrian independent media outlets in the Turkish city of Gaziantep.
According to reports, he was hit by a bullet in the head as he was walking in the street. Jerf was immediately rushed to a hospital, where he died.
The attack was captured by security cameras installed nearby, according to Turkish news outlet T24 website.
In October, two Syrian journalists, Ibrahim Abd al-Qader and Fares Hamadi – additionally an early member of RBSS group – have been discovered slain in an condominium within the city of Urfa in southeastern Turkey.
