BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 A.M.) – Friends and colleagues of late RT correspondent Khaled Al-Khatib honoured his memory in front of a mural, in Salamyyah Park, on Tuesday.

Director of the Khatwa voluntary team, where Al-Khatib worked, said, “We wanted to dedicate a mural for his soul so that we will remember him here in Salamyyah… his original homeland where he lived.”

The mural artist spoke tearfully about the journalist, “Khaled Al-Khatib is a pride for his country, family, and Salamyyah; when he was alive, and when he died.”

Mourners paid their respects to deceased journalist at Salamyyah cemetery where he was buried.

Al-Khatib was accompanying troops of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) while they were on a mission to liberate the town of al-Sukhna, in the eastern countryside of Homs. They came under fire near Bghailiyah village where Al-Khatib was killed by an exploding rocket shell.

Al-Khatib had been working with RT since April.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
