Unfortunately, what happened to Abbas was not a fluke. According to Amnesty International, Syria's government and a few rebels are specifically targeting journalists.

Abbas was on site to cover the increasingly violent fighting around Qusair, a western town not far from Dabaa, which is seen as a crucial stronghold to both the rebels and the government forces backed by Hezbollah.
