Al-Suwayda governorate – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored this morning renewed anti-regime protests in the city of Al-Sweida.
Dozens of Jabal al-Arab residents gathered in front of Al-Sweida governorate building and then headed to the city market. The demonstrators renewed their demands for overthrow the regime and improve the living condition, chanting slogans such as “”Long live Syria.. Down with Bashar al-Assad”, and the Syrian people are one”. The protesters expressed their solidarity with the towns and villages of Daraa governorate, which are witnessing a security cordon imposed by regime forces and loyalists.
Yesterday, SOHR activists 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.
