Italian photographer hurt in Syria, returning to Italy

(ANSA) - Rome, February 11 - An Italian photographer has been
hurt in a battle at Syria's last ISIS bastion and is already
returning to Italy, sources said Monday.
Milan-born Gabriele Micalizzi, 34, was injured in the battle
between hundreds of ISIS militiamen and advancing pro-US forces
at Dayr az Zor, sources said.
Micalizzi was taken to a local hospital before being flown by
helicopter to Baghdad, sources said.
"He was seriously injured in the face by RPG shrapnel but
does not seem to be in a life-threatening condition, said the
CesuraLab collective he is co-founder of.
Micalizzi will be flown back to Italy as soon as possible,
the Kurdish Syrian Rojava Information Center said.
"He will be shortly repatriated to Italy on board a medical
plane of the (US-led) coalition" that is fighting ISIS, Kurdish
forces said.
