Anti-regime graffiti calling for the downfall of the Assad regime, the withdrawal of Iranian militias, and the release of detainees reappeared on the walls of schools in the towns of Douma and Deir Makir in rural Damascus.
Local activists reported that the graffiti scrawled on walls in Deir Makir called for the release of detainees from the prisons of the Assad regime and expressed rejection of the presence of Iranian sectarian militias in Syria.
Activists added that other unidentified persons tore up a photograph of Bashar Al-Assad that was hung on the Tishreen School in Douma and scrawled graffiti on the walls of the school demanding freedom and the overthrow of the regime.
The growing dissent in the Damascus suburb came a few days after the resurgence of new anti-regime protests in the towns of Kanakir and Maaraba in southern rural Damascus with protestors demanding the fall of the regime, the release of detainees, and the withdrawal of the Iranian militias from the region.
The regime-held areas in the Damascus suburbs have been witnessing frequent protests against the violations being committed by the Assad forces and their allied militias as well as to denounce the regime’s raids of homes and forced recruitment of the local population into the regime’s forces.
