Anti-regime demonstrations in Suwayda province, demanding political change and the overthrow of the Assad regime, have continued for the fifty-second consecutive day at Karama Square in the city center.
On Tuesday, demonstrators at Karama Square displayed banners with messages such as: “The path to justice and peace will not be long with the determination of free people,” “Today at the International Court of Justice and tomorrow at the International Criminal Court,” and “the tyranny of Assad’s prisons will end.” They also chanted, “O Bashar, who made you a pharaoh?” to which he responded, “No court of justice deters me.”
On Monday, the people of Suwayda province, especially those in Shahba town, called for a peaceful protest against the Assad regime. This protest aimed to show support for any actions that expose the regime’s violations against the Syrian people, coinciding with the commencement of the first sessions of the International Court of Justice, which are examining lawsuits filed against the Assad regime for its involvement in war crimes.
