MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian military medical workers have saved the life of Wafa Shabrouney, a female journalist of RT Arabic who has been injured in the Syrian province of Idlib, the Russian Defence Ministry said on Thursday.
Shabrouney was then taken to Russia’s Hmeymim airbase on a transport helicopter, which was also carrying a team of military doctors.
Later on Thursday, RT and Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan thanked Defence Minister Shoigu and the Russian military for saving the journalist’s life.
The correspondent’s condition is now assessed as critical but stable. She may be taken to Russia to receive medical assistance there.
Shabrouney was gravely wounded on Wednesday in a mine explosion in the city of Maarat al-Numan.
