Syrian hold rallies
Holding Syrian flags and posters of Assad, hundreds of people sang pro-government songs and danced on their beats at the Fardose street in Damascus, a spectacle that has reemerged again in several Syrian cities following a year of no such activity.
"I am so happy because the people have gathered today here again. It's a nice thing to see Syria as it used to be before, full of its people of all sects," Ala'a, a Syrian demonstrator, told Xinhua during her participation in the demonstration.
"May God help us to restore our country to what it has used to be and may God protect Syria and the army and help us to see our country as beautiful as it used to be," she hoped.
Wednesday's rally has also been marked with the participation of many Syrian soldiers who have joined the upbeat mood and took part in singing and dancing with the civilians.
