TV debate about Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad turned into brawl

A journalist and a lawyer from Jordan fought on air after arguing about Syrian president Bashar al Assad during a TV debate, which aired on Josat satellite Television Channel on Thursday.

Lawyer Samih Kharees defended al Assad as “a symbol leading his nation” while journalist Shakir al-Johari assailed the Syrian leader.

Al-Johari firstly threw a bottle of water, then jumped out of his seat, picked up a chair and hurled it at Kharees. He tried to attack him again but was stopped by the presenter and another employee from the channel.

It is not the first time al-Johari has been involved in a studio fight. He was previously one of the brawlers in another debate over Syria in May.
