Thousands of demonstrators from Suwayda’s villages and towns gathered at Karama Square in the city center on Tuesday, participating in protests advocating for political change and the removal of the Assad regime.
Amidst revolutionary chants, the demonstrators held up a large photograph of Sultan Pasha al-Atrash, the leader of the Syrian revolution, in Karama Square.
Female protestors in the demonstration also raised numerous banners, calling for the implementation of UN Resolution 2254, accompanied by popular songs sung collectively in the square.
The Suwayda popular uprising had previously issued a statement outlining the primary demands of the protest movement. The statement emphasized the continuation of the demonstrations until the regime’s departure, the necessity of a political transition following UN Resolution 2254, the activation of UN Resolution 2118, the referral of war crimes perpetrators against the Syrian people to the International Criminal Court, and the release of detainees.
