Anti-governments protests | People protest soaring living costs and corruption in three Syrian regions

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored this evening a demonstration in the city of Idlib. The demonstrators chanted slogans against the “Salvation Government” and Hayaat Tahrir Al-Sham and its role in finding a solution to the rise in prices in general and the bread in particular, demanding freedom and the overthrow of the regime, and confirming their support for the uprising of Al-Sweida.

At a time when all Syrian provinces experience astronomically inflated prices of staples and essential products following the ongoing currency plunge, SOHR activists have monitored tens of people demonstrating in front of Al-Saraya building in Al-Suwaidaa city. The demonstrators protested the deteriorating economic and living conditions across Syria as well as the prohibitively high prices of basic products.

The protesters chanted anti-regime slogans saying “Syria is ours, it is not for Al-Assad’s family .. Come on, Bashar, go away .. People want to bring down the regime”. The protesters also demanded the Iranians and Russians leave Syria.

Yesterday, large shops and fuel stores in most of Syria’s provinces were partly closed after the Syrian pound hits a new record low in the past hours.

SOHR activists have monitored yesterday mass demonstration in Tafas city in Daraa countryside. The demonstrators protested the deteriorating living conditions, condemning the presence the Iranian and Russian occupants in the Syrian territories, calling for the toppling of the Syrian regime, and demanding the release of the detainees.

The demonstrators have lifted signboards with slogans, some of which read “if a regime cannot control prices, then it has to stand down”, and “in all countries, a man immolates himself for the people’s interest, while in Syria, the people are immolated for just one man”.
