Jordan Journalists Destroy TV Set During Live On-Air Brawl Over Syria (VIDEO)

Two Jordanian journalists dramatically came to blows on live television Tuesday night during an argument over the crisis in Syria – destroying a helpless table.

Shaker Al-Johari and Mohammed Al-Jayousi wrecked the TV set after appearing on a show called "Between Opposing Opinions" presented by Zuhair Al-Azza.


Mohammed Al-Jayousi seemingly provoked Al-Johari by accusing him of being "deviant" and supporting the Syrian revolution.

Al-Johari responded by accusing Al-Jayousi of supporting the Syrian regime in exchange for money, to which Al-Jayousi responded, "Shut up".

Al-Johari then got up from his seat and the two started shoving the table top at one another.

Production staff on the programme can be seen pulling Al-Johari away after the table fell apart and he walks across to aim a kick at his fellow guest.
