Al-Alam correspondent in Syria Rua al-Ali has been wounded while accompanying the Syrian army advances in al-Khalidiya district of Homs city, al-Alam reports.
“Al-Ali was shot in her thigh on Saturday before being taken to a hospital where she undergoes a surgery,” director of al-Alam office in Damascus Hossain Mortada said.
Al-Ali was one of the most active al-Alam correspondents in recent days, covering the events in Syria especially in Homs.
The Syrian army forces now control half of the al-Khalidiya district of Homs after ousting foreign-backed militants in fierce fighting in the central Syrian city, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday.
