An Anna News Network team loses their driver to accurate sniper fire while moving through a heavily contested area in Syria.
Early in the Syrian Civil War, news teams were swarming the battlefields in an attempt to cover the conflict. This ANNA news team lost their driver to FSA sniper fire, while trying to move in between regime positions. The passenger of the vehicle quickly took control of the vehicle, and managed to push them through the contact, but the driver did not survive. To top off their problems, the passenger of the vehicle also appears to be injured, either by bullet fragments, or by fragments of his friend.
They quickly pull over once they are at a relatively safe spot, and remove their dead friend from the driver’s seat. They then quickly move to the nearest hospital to receive treatment for the injured reporter.
