Syria condemns TV reporter's arrest by Israel in Golan
The Journalists Association condemned Thursday the arrest of a correspondent for the Syrian National Television station by Israel in the occupied Golan Heights together with his aide and the confiscation of their instruments.

The two men were arrested after their homes were raided and searched by the Israeli police in Majdel Shams and Baqaata.

The Israelis seized, "without any justification," equipment including cellular phones and computer, a statement by the Association said.

"This represents an assault on public freedom of expression," the statement said and called on all the media throughout the world to condemn this action.

The statement also called on Arab media to "reveal the facts about this barbaric assault against Arab media in occupied land and to express solidarity with the journalists and call for their immediate release.
