Dozens of people on Friday gathered in the town of Al-Harak in eastern rural Dara’a to protest against the Assad regime’s assassination of former FSA commander Adham Al-Akrad who was assassinated along with four other former FSA commanders in Dara’a province on Wednesday.
The demonstrators held signs calling for the release of detainees and the improvement of the living conditions. The signs read “the Assad regime is murderous before and after these so-called reconciliation agreements,” and “we will not give up our demands and rights to have a decent life.”
The demonstrators also chanted the early slogans of the revolution, such as “we prefer death to humiliation,” as they called on the revolutionaries in the province to retaliate to the assassination of Al-Akrad and his comrades.
The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) on Thursday accused the Assad regime and Hezbollah militia of being behind the Wednesday assassinations as well as for all the previous assassinations of dozens of former FSA senior commanders in Dara’a province.
The SOC held Russia legal, political and moral responsibility for failing to honor the promises and guarantees it made when sponsoring the so-called reconciliation agreements between the people of southern Syria and the Assad regime. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
