Human Rights NGOs condemn the escalation of the violations conducted by Syrian regime against the journalists, media-staff, Syrian or foreigner, working in Syria. NGOs, call the international society to protect the journalists and the media-staff on the Syrian territory, by practicing the pressure on the regime.

In the same week, on October 20, 2012, the two journalists were killed, Omar Abdul Razik El-Lotof and Mohamed Gomaa Abdulkarim El-Lotof, after they were stopped by the elements of the regime near Aleppo. While they were in their way back to Hams from Turkey with three persons from their families. It is worth to be mentioned that “Omar El-Lotof, was among the founders of the general authority of the revolution and members of the media office.

NGOs, find no point in their call or request direct to the regime is in vain. The international security is incapable to protect or help the civilians and the journalists or it does not want to provide it. But we will keep reporting about the violations conducted against them in a cold blood which reach most of times to murder. We refuse that their sacrifices and suffer in doing their duty will not be forgotten. We hope that the regional and international organizations and particularly the media freedom and protecting of the journalists to press the different governments to play an active role to push Asad’s regime and opposition to stop its repeated violations, release the detainees, pressing a specific charges against them in addition to reveal the place of their existence and to let their relatives visit them”.
