A massive demonstration on Friday took place in Idlib city to denounce the terrorism of the Assad regime and its backers and to reaffirm commitment to the goals of the Syrian revolution.
Member of the Syrian National Coalition, Najib al-Rahmon, who participated in the demonstration, stressed that the brutality of Assad and Russia will not quench the Syrians’ yearning for freedom. He said that the revolution continues despite the escalating crimes by the Assad regime and its allies.
Participants in the demonstration waved the flag of the Syrian revolution and held signs that read ‘the revolution continues,’ and ‘you will go, Putin, just as Guru Henri Gouraud of France did,’ to refer the recent visit by the Russian President who was pictured standing beside the shrine of the Prophet Yahya inside the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus.
The demonstrators emphasized that the revolution will continue until the overthrow of the regime as they chanted slogans against Russia which is propping up the Assad regime.
Towns and villages of Idlib province have been subjected to a brutal onslaught by the Assad regime and its allied militias with Russian aerial support since November 25, 2019. The bombing campaign has so far forced tens of thousands of people from their homes as well as killed and injured hundreds more. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
