Dozens of people who were displaced from the province of Homs held a sit-in protest in the town of Jarablus in northern rural Aleppo on Friday to commemorate the massacre regime forces committed against civilians in Homs city on April 19, 2011. The massacre, which became widely known as the Clock Square Massacre, claimed the lives of dozens of peaceful protestors.
Local activists said that the demonstrators, many of them are locals from Azaz, marched through the town to commemorate the massacre which became an important milestone in the history of the Syrian revolution.
The demonstrators held signs condemning the Assad regime and demanding accountability. They said that they wanted to remind the world of the massacre which took place in the New Hour Square in central Homs city.
The participants stressed that the massacre would remain an utter disgrace to the international community which has remained silent about the Assad regime’s and its Russian and Iranian allies’ atrocities against the Syrian people for the past several years. They also reiterated their demands for freedom and dignity.
The participants reiterated that the revolution would continue until it achieves its goals for which the Syrian people are making enormous sacrifices. They stressed that this horrible crime will motivate them to carry on with the revolution until victory.
Similar demonstrators took place many towns and villages across Idlib and Aleppo provinces to commemorate the massacre. They demanded the overthrow of the regime, punishment for the perpetrators, and the release of detainees from the prisons of the Assad regime. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
