Turbulence, violence in the Middle East
Syria in Lebanon: Continuous protests
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Tripoli – Lebanon. Abu Samra and Kobbeh regions had manifestations and sit-ins against Bashar Al Assad, Hezbollah, & the Lebanese government. There were children, women, and young adults all singing Syrian songs made in Syria throughout the year. Everybody knew the songs. They were shouting against Bashar.
It started after Muslim night prayers. These are not members of a political party. They are groups of people who have a common goal: Help Syrian refugees & ask for the departure of the Syrian regime.
There were many Syrians among them singing and hailing for Syria to the extent that one would think he/she was not in Lebanon, rather in one of the neighborhoods of Syria.
Wounded members from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) joined at the end while people were hailing through microphones: Long lives the Free Syrian Army. Photos taken on August 4, 2012.
