MOSCOW, March 15. /TASS/. A crew from RT came under shelling carried out by militants while making a documentary on the fight of the Kurds against the Islamic State terrorist group near Al-Shaddadah in eastern Syria, the TV channel said on Tuesday.

None of the crew was wounded during the shelling. The journalists captured on video how one of the shells exploded some 15 or 20 meters from the crew.

The journalists were taking footage at Syrian Kurdish militia (YPG) positions located some three kilometers (1.8 miles) from the frontline.

"Islamic State militants apparently spotted us and our vehicles. Then they started shelling our positions. About five or six shells were fired at us, after which YPG fighters decided we should leave the position," said an RT journalist who came under attack.

RT journalists have come under fire at least eight times when covering the conflict in Syria in recent years, according to the TV channel.
