The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said in a statement that the Turkish authorities should immediately and thoroughly investigate a recent drone attack targeting journalists.
On Wednesday, August 23, a suspected Turkish drone strike in Syria’s Kurdish-controlled northeast hit a car belonging to the all-female broadcaster JIN TV, killing worker Najm el-Din Faisal Haj Sinan and wounding journalist Dalila Agid, told Dijla Eito, a member of JIN TV’s board, to CPJ.
"We are deeply saddened by the tragic drone attack that killed driver Najm el-Din Faisal and injured journalist Dalila Agid while they were working in northeastern Syria," said Sherif Mansour, CPJ Middle East and North Africa program coordinator, in Washington, D.C., adding that "Turkish authorities should swiftly launch an investigation into this attack, determine who was responsible and if the reporting team was targeted, and hold the perpetrators to account."
