The crowds lifted slogans in support of the Syrian regime. This rally comes after threats of prosecute every one who refuses to participate in the pro-regime rally, which the head of the “Syrian Students’ Council in Al-Suwaidaa” called for yesterday.
SOHR sources reported yesterday that reliable sources informed the Syrian Observatory that the Syrian regime and its loyalists affiliated with Al-Baath party were preparing to amass civilians, especially students and employees in Al-Suwaidaa for a rally in support of the Syrian government, in response to the successive protests against the regime.
The Syrian regime follows such tactics as a kind of indirect threat to the demonstrators, along with giving greater powers to its military, security and party forces. Meanwhile, residents feared of a direct confrontation with opponents of the regime.
