The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored, this morning, renewed demonstrations in SDF-held areas in Deir ez-Zor countryside, protesting the offensive statements of the “Prophet Muhammad” by the French president. A demonstration took place in the town of Al-Shuhail, east of Deir ez-Zor, during which demonstrators demanded the departure of French troops, and burned the French flag and the picture of Macron.

Yesterday, SOHR sources said that the Syrian people of all backgrounds were seen taking to streets in areas beyond to regime control, staging and participating in mass demonstrations, protesting the statements and repeated insults by the French president “Emanuel Macron” against the “Prophet Mohammed”.

In areas under the control of Turkish forces and their proxy factions, exactly in Ras Al-Ain in Al-Hasakah, Tal Abyad in Al-Raqqah, Afrin city, Jendires district and Al-Bab city in rural Aleppo, SOHR activists have monitored mass demonstrations in which the demonstrators burnt down the French flag and posters of “Macron”.

While in Idlib, demonstrations took place in Idlib city, Binnish and Killi towns, condemning Macron’s insulting statements against the “Prophet Mohammed” (PBUH).

As for SDF-held areas, Observatory eyewitnesses have monitored hundreds of people of Al-Shaytat and surrounding villages staging a mass demonstration in Ghranij town in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. It is worth noting that this demonstration was met by gunfire upon the air by SDF troops in armoured vehicles, in an attempt to disperse the protesters, which resulted in the injury of two demonstrators. Also, in Al-Busayrah city, Al-Izba and M’eizileh areas similar demonstrations took place, where the demonstrators demanded the departure of French troops located in Deir Ezzor, and burnt down the French flag and posters of “Macron”.

Moreover, individuals stuck posters on the walls of Al-Raqqah city, under the slogan “Except the Messenger of Allah”, some of these posters read “I am not an ISIS member. I am not a terrorist. I am a Muslim. I am of the community of Mohammed.”
