Anadolu Agency's (AA) photo journalist, Sinan Gul explained how he was shot in his leg and foot in the Syrian city of Aleppo.
"When snipers started shooting I used a car as a shield, and following the gunfire there were no Free Sryian Army soldiers around me. As they moved, I thought it was all clear. To hide myself behind a car across the street, I swiftly ran to that spot but I was under profound fire, snipers directly fired at me. I was shot in my left calf and right foot and for a long time they kept shooting at me," said Gul.
