The reporter was killed in a government shelling of the Karam al-Tarab neighborhood in Aleppo while filming the bombardment of the neighborhood by government forces, according to HNN and Al-Jazeera.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said that Bakri, also known as Youssef Abu Jad ,worked as a reporter and videographer for the local news outlet Halab News Network (HNN).

Halab News Network, based in Aleppo, posts news and reports from around the country and the region, with a focus on Aleppo province. The network covers the conflict, politics, clashes, and protests. Its broadcasts are published by several regional news outlets including Al-Jazeera but it does not publish footage under individual bylines, added CPJ.
