I am an expatriate Syrian. My suggestion is to talk to someone local to advise you on the value of the $15K ads in the paper. How many copies do they sell? Do people really buy them? Do they distribute them well in all of Syria. Mind you they are 90% propaganda. My guess is that they will help you reach the simple people living in remote areas who cannot afford better journalism and if this is the case it is worth it.

Re: Syrian Newaspaper
It's being handled by the Canadian Embassy, so we're trusting their knowledge of the local newspaper scene. We're presuming it's the biggest daily papers in the country, and as you say, we hope to reach the more remote areas yet also spread as wide a net as possible in case a possible witness has moved on.
