Dozens of people in Suwayda province on Wednesday organized a sit-in protest in front of the tomb of the leader Sultan Pasha al-Atrash in the town of al-Qurayya to condemn the deteriorating living conditions and the Assad regime’s failure to provide basic services, as well as to demand political change in the country.
Participants held banners expressing their demands for political change in accordance with UN resolutions, rejection of partition, the release of detainees, and accountability for the corrupt officials and criminals.
