Jordanian veteran journalist, Saad Silawi, passed away earlier today, Saturday, September 1, 2018.

Silawi was the director of Alarabiya News Agency in Amman since its founding until he was diagnosed with Laryngeal cancer in 2012. A year after, he underwent larynx-removal surgery. Silawi has been bravely fighting the disease since then.

For many years, Silawi served as a local and regional media correspondent and successfully covered various important and sensitive reports. He is considered one of the best reporters in the history of Jordan.
