Important cities in the Syrian Civil War where journalists have been killed.

The journalists killed during the Syrian Civil War refers to the foreign war correspondents, Syrian professional journalists (including those who work for pro-government media outlets), and Syrian citizen journalists (including those who work for opposition forces) killed since the beginning of the civil war in 2011 and who have died as a result of their reporting. Also included in a separate form are those journalists whose whereabouts are unknown or whose disappearance is a result of their reporting and the period of their disappearance, including those cases where it is unknown as to whether or not they are casualties.

The Doha Centre for Media Freedom has documented 110 professional or citizen journalists who have died during the Syrian civil war.[1] The Syrian Journalists' Association has documented 153 journalists killed since the uprising and throughout the civil war, and 15 in March 2013.[2][3] As of March 2013, the United Nations estimated that 70,000 people have been killed during the Syrian civil war.[2]
