Hundreds of demonstrators flocked to Al-Seer (Al-Karama) Square in downtown Suwayda on Tuesday for the 10th day in a row to demand political change in the country.
Local activists on Monday published videos of protesters removing Bashar al-Assad’s photograph from the municipality building in the town of Al-Qarya, south of Suwayda. Many villages in the province also witnessed similar scenes, as people expressed their absolute rejection of the Assad regime.
In the village of Al-Majdal in western rural Suwayda, dozens of villagers gathered on Monday and announced their demands through loudspeakers. They raised a banner that read, “either we live with dignity or die.” The people of the town of Amtan, south of Suwayda, also continued their daily protest, demanding the downfall of the regime.
During the demonstrations, the protesters called for the departure of the Assad regime and the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Syria, especially the Russian and Iranian forces and all sectarian militias. They also called for the implementation of UN Resolution 2254, which emphasizes the political transition.
The protesters stressed that the Assad regime’s survival in power in Syria has become impossible after it destroyed the country and displaced more than half of its people.
