gency) - Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi on Wednesday said the armed terrorist groups perpetrated the worst massacre against journalism and the freedom of media when they executed the Syria media figures in cold blood.
The Minister held those who instigate against Syria and escalate terrorism against its people fully responsible for this massacre.
Minister al-Zoubi said "This massacre won't go unpunished and the broadcast of the Syrian al-Ikhbaryia Satellite will not stop and we hold the EU and Arab and International organizations responsible for this massacre."
Al-Zoubi added: "Those who committed this crime had carried out the decision of the Arab League Council to silence the voice of Syria."
Three journalists and workers in the Syrian al-Ikhbaryia Satellite Channel were martyred Wednesday morning in a brutal terrorist attack by an armed terrorist group targeting the headquarters of al-Ikhbaryia.
The terrorists planted explosive devices in the headquarters of al-Ikhbaryia following their ransacking and destroying of the Satellite Channel studios, including the newsroom studio which was entirely destroyed.
al-Ikhbaryia Satellite Channel, an active Syrian media means in confronting misleading and misinformation campaigns, continued, however, its transmission regardless of the brutal terrorist attack.
Syria has been facing a sinister campaign launched by some Arab media means, especially the Qatari and Saudi, and western media means fabricating and disseminating false, virtual and biased news.
Meanwhile, The Syrian Journalists Union and National Media Council mourned the martyrdom of three journalists.
They condemned the heinous terrorist attack targeted the Syrian al-Ikhbaryia Satellite channel causing the martyrdom of three of its staff.
In a statement, the National Media council offered sincere condolences for the families of the martyrs, expressing condemnation of all forms of terrorism which targets Syria's security and stability.
The statement stressed that the Syrian national media will remain one of the most important basis of Syria's resistance to protect its role and position in the region and the world.
