Anti-regime protesters representing the Suwayda tribes and villages gathered at Karama Square on Friday to join the popular demonstrations calling for the removal of Bashar al-Assad. Women from Suwayda also participated in traditional attire.
In the town of Qanawat in the Suwayda countryside, residents unveiled two new images at the town’s entrance. The first displayed Sultan Pasha al-Atrash, the leader of the Great Syrian Revolution, while the second featured a dove of peace. These replaced pictures of Hafez al-Assad, which had been in place since 1996.
At Karama Square in the city center, demonstrators chanted a song performed by Syrian artist Aya Muhanna, which was broadcast during the mass demonstration advocating for freedom, political change, and the regime’s departure.
For over a month, demonstrators in Suwayda province have emphasized their commitment to ongoing protests until the regime departs. They also emphasize the need for a political transition in accordance with UN Resolution 2254, the activation of UN Resolution 2118, the referral of those responsible for war crimes against the Syrian people to the International Criminal Court, and the release of detainees.
