Photos: Hundreds Take to Damascus Streets to Support President Assad after US-Led Strike


Hundreds of Syrians are demonstrating in a landmark square of the Syrian capital, waving victory signs and honking their car horns in a show of defiance against the recent US-led strike on the Arab country.

The demonstrations broke out early Saturday following a wave of US, British and French military strikes against Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons in Douma. The Syrian government has strongly denied the accusations.

SANA reporters affirmed that life is normal in Damascus and other Syrian cities.

In Damascus, hundreds of residents gathered in Omayyad Square, many waving Syrian and Iranian flags. Some clapped their hands and danced, others drove in convoys, honking their horns.

“We are your men, Bashar,” they shouted, according to SANA news agency.
