NEW TV prevented from covering Assad/ Arab League meeting, report

Share:

New TV reported on Wednesday that the Syrian Information Ministry prevented it from covering the meeting between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the visiting Arab League delegation.

An Arab League delegation arrived in Damascus earlier on Wednesday in a bid to defuse the deadly violence there, according to a statement issued by the Arab League last week.

According to the United Nations, the Syrian regime’s crackdown on protests that erupted in mid-March has killed more than 3,000 people.

New TV’s report surprised the observers that Ya Libnan regularly contacts, specially since the station is known for its support for the Hezbollah-led March 8 alliance , which is closely allied with Syria

    Yah … Assad doesn’t want any slips-of-the-tongue on the public media.  He’s already got enough to be ashamed of.

      Maybe New-TV has put out some accurate reports in the past, to their detriment now … dangerous to not be like SANA.

        You know, you can’t go into Syria to get news, you can’t send news out, seems the only way to get news out(real, honest news) is to escape across the border somehow with your bit of news.  Then you really shouldn’t go back for more(Duhhh).

        Sounds more and more like Iran!
