The Arab League officially asked the satellite operators Arabsat and Nilesat to stop broadcasting Syrian media, including Syria TV in June 2012.[2] On 5 September 2012, Syrian Television Channels broadcast were broken off on Arabsat and Nilesat, including Syria TV. Syria TV and Syrian Drama TV broadcasts were stopped on Hotbird on 22 October 2012.[3]

On May 26, 2013 Opposition forces opened fire on the Syria TV team near al-Daba'a village in the countryside of al-Qusayr in Homs province, injuring Cameraman Asem al-Shaar.[4]
