DAMASCUS (AFP) - 

A Syrian journalist working with a pro-regime television network has been killed in the southern province of Quneitra, where government forces are battling rebels, state media said Monday.

Government forces have been bombarding rebel-held territory in the region, retaking the area of Masshara bordering the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights.

The journalist, Mustafa Salama, was killed in Quneitra province after "being injured by shelling from terrorist groups in the Masshara area", the official SANA news agency reported.

The Sama station he worked for described him as a "hero" and said he died "while covering the advance of the Syrian Arab Army on the Quneitra front".

Since March 2011, more than 350,000 people have been killed in the conflict in Syria -- the world's deadliest country for media workers in recent years.
