Defection of a broadcaster in Syria

From Akram:  "O'ola Abbas, a Syrian news broadcaster in "Al-Ikbaryyia Assouryia", a state-owned TV station, attacked last month. A'abbas defected and issued a statement on this issue (Arabic).

Her motivations are unclear: she could have been paid for or she simply and sincerely defected. The lesson to be learned from this short and insignificant story is the following:

would she be there at the time of attack, she wouldn't have the chance to defect 20 days later. The FSA gangs would slaughter her as a, female, Alawite and Shabyiha".
