Ara news

ARA News is a Syr­ian independent press agency, mainly staffed by a group of journalists and media activists reporting from within Syria and abroad, concerned with covering the local developments across Syria, including the Kur­dish region, the  north and northeastern areas of the country.

ARA (in Kur­dish: Ajansa Rojnamevaniya Azad) stands for Inde­pen­dent Press Agency.

ARA News’ main objec­tives include the com­mit­ment to objec­tiv­ity and the basic prin­ci­ples of jour­nal­ism, and overcoming the con­straints on free­dom of speech in Syria.

Inde­pen­dent of polit­i­cal influ­ence, ARA News regards itself as a gen­uine par­tic­i­pant in the Syr­ian tran­si­tional phase from total­i­tar­i­an­ism towards freedom of expression and democracy.
