French police attack a Syrian “political refugee”

French media published the news of the French police assault on a Syrian photojournalist while covering the raging demonstrations in Parisian streets, the “Freedom March” …

For his part, Christophe Delaware, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders, wrote in a tweet on Twitter, “The 24-year-old freelance photojournalist Amir al-Halabi was hit in the face with a baton … All our solidarity with Amir al-Halabi. This police violence is nothing. Maqbool. Amir came to France from Syria to seek refuge there, as did many other Syrian journalists. The land of human rights does not threaten them but rather protects them.

According to MediaPart reporter Anton Roget, “Medics received a prince on the streets and the police harassed him several times while he was being transported to the hospital.”

The photographer suffered a broken nose and an eyebrow bone injury. And he was transferred to the “La Riboisier” hospital in Paris.

Note that Amir al-Halabi left Aleppo and worked with the “White Helmets” organization in Aleppo during the Syrian war and at the end of 2016 he left for Turkey and arrived in France in April 2017, where he obtained the status of a political refugee.
