Gunmen abduct six, wound one at opposition TV station
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) have been blamed for the storming of an opposition television station and the seizure of six activists. 

Pro-opposition media outlets said the incident took place Wednesday evening in the Kallaseh neighborhood of Aleppo, where the offices of Shada al-Huriya are located. 

A number of gunmen using two vehicles stormed the satellite station’s premises, smashed equipment and fled with at least six civilian media activists as hostages, the outlets said. 

An individual who tried to flee the attackers was shot twice and left for dead on the street and was taken to hospital, they said. 

The outlets differed as to whether six or seven individuals were taken hostage by the attackers. ISIS militants have been blamed for a series of murders and kidnappings of activists in the Aleppo area for months.
