Anti-regime demonstrations persist for the fifth consecutive day across numerous villages and towns in Suwayda province, located in southern Syria. Demonstrators assembled at Al-Sir (Karama) Square in the city center, reiterating their demand for the removal of the Assad regime.
The Suwayda 24 news website reported that apart from the substantial gatherings at Al-Sir Square, a separate demonstration unfolded in the town of Arman, situated southeast of Suwayda. Protesters held banners bearing various slogans, including calls for the release of detainees, detainee freedom, and the unification of Syria. Demands were also voiced for the implementation of UN Resolution 2254.
In another instance, a demonstration took place in the village of Salim to the north of Suwayda. Simultaneously, demonstrators from Sala village in the east of Suwayda obstructed the primary village road as part of the ongoing general strike, now in its fifth day.
On Thursday, residents of Al-Qarya town partially restricted road access, while demonstrators in the western town of Ura, Suwayda, closed roads amid continued shutdown of government establishments. Additionally, protesters sealed off the Damascus-Suwayda road; however, passage is permitted solely for emergency situations.
