Large numbers of Syrians have taken to the streets in the south of the country dominated by opposition groups, calling for the ousting of the Assad regime, Arabi21.com reported on Friday.
The protesters said that Assad must step down and Syrians must unite to rebuild their country. They asked the international community to support the demonstrations.
Opposition websites said that the protests were concentrated in the main squares in Idlib and the southern, western and northern suburbs of the city, as well as the areas around Hama and Aleppo. Protesters raised the flags of the Syrian revolution and chanted slogans against President Bashar Al-Assad and his allies, the Russians and the Iranians.
The UN envoy to Syria was denounced by the protesters as a "partner" with the Assad forces. This was a reference to his latest remarks about Idlib.
During the past few months, the north of Syria has been witnessing regular Friday protests attended by thousands of people in support of the revolution and calling for the ousting of the president and his regime.
