Naddaf, a cameraman with the opposition news agency Shahba Press, was shot by a sniper while covering clashes between the Syrian army and the rebels in the Al-Sheik Saied neighborhood of Aleppo, according to the agency, the Syrian Journalists Association, and local human rights group Syrian Human Rights Committee.

Ma'moun Abu Amr, editor-in-chief of Shahba Press, told CPJ that Naddaf, who was accompanying the rebels, was killed instantly.
