Syrians prepared large numbers of flags and microphones on Thursday to be used in the anti-Assad demonstrations on Friday.
The planned demonstrations took place today amid relative calmness and uneasy tension in most cities and towns which are held by the Syrian opposition amid risks that Assad barrel bombs and artillery would attack again.
Among the places which witnessed anti-Assad demonstrations were the city of Idlib, Jar Janaz, Saraqeb, Maaret al-Muaman, al-Raten, Talbisah, al-Qaboon, Douma, Harasta, Kafr Batna, Zamlka, Kafr Zeitah, al-Waar, Kafr Naboza, Ezaz and many others.
In some places what Syrians expected happened, when Assad jets attacked a peaceful demonstration in Aleppo countryside’s al-Atareb. No details were reported about the attacks.
"The fragile truce gave us the opportunity to take to the streets again to show the world the genuine truth about our revolution without any deviation of its trajectory," said Makseem from the Assad-besieged neighborhood al-Waer in Homs.
Syrians went to streets in March 2011 to express opposition to Assad regime’s oppressive practices and to show how angry they felt when they saw the graphic photos of school children tortured to death by Assad intelligence terrorists after they wrote anti-Assad slogans on their school’ wall in Daraa.
