Mikati: The enemy’s persecution of journalists is a fresh blemish on his disreputable history

Prime Minister Najib Mikati believed that “the Israeli enemy’s direct targeting of journalists in its ongoing aggression on Lebanese territory is a new disgrace added to its black record of murder and aggression.”

Mikati said in a statement: “May God have mercy on the media martyr, Issam Abdullah, and all hope for a speedy recovery for the wounded journalists and photographers, who were targeted today by direct Israeli bombing while covering the events of the Israeli aggression against the south.”

This comes at a time when Reuters announced in a statement today, Friday, that “a videographer from the agency was killed while performing his work in southern Lebanon.”

The statement said, “We are deeply saddened to learn of the news of the killing of videographer Issam Abdullah.”
