The Syrian Coalition-supported Women Center for Training and Rehabilitation in eastern Ghouta planted trees in the districts of Jobar, Ein Tarma, Hazza and Zamalka to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the start of the Syrian revolution, which took place on March 15.
Residents of eastern Ghouta planted about 60 olive and 50 apricot trees. In a symbolic move, they planted an olive tree in one of the impact sites of the sarin attack that targeted Zamalka on August 21, 2013. Nearly 1,500 people were killed in the chemical attack that was launched by regime forces.
Member of the Syrian Coalition Mohammed Khair al-Wazir said that after five years of the start of the revolution, the Syrian people, especially in eastern Ghouta, are more determined than ever to continue with the revolution until all its goals are achieved.
Al-Wazir also said that Syrians respond to Assad’s terrorism and brutality by planting trees and flowers, which are a symbol for life and the good for Syria and future generations. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
