A Syrian guide of Turkey's Anadolu Agency was killed on July 16 in a rocket attack, the state-run agency has reported, Hürriyet Daily News reported.

Ahmed abu Rasha was killed as the team drove toward Museyir, an Aleppo district controlled by rebels, to cover a bombing incident.

Salih Mahmud Leyla and Ahmed Muhammed Ali, the two Anadolu Agency journalists, were travelling in a separate car, which according to Leyla was the real target, missed by the rocket that hit Rasha's car.

The Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria is targeting the agency's reporters as they are "telling the world that the al-Assad regime is targeting civilians," Leyla has been quoted as saying.
