Syria: 'Long Live Assad' — Protesters in Damascus condemn US-led strikes

Hundreds of demonstrators staged a rally at Umayyad square in Damascus, Saturday, decrying the airstrike conducted by the US and its allies last night. One of the protesters said that the country was not afraid of the strike from an «ignorant lie of [the US President Donald] Trump». «We will defend it with our knowledge, education and strong Army. Syria may be sick but it will not die,» he... Еще said. Another respondent said that Syrians «condemn and denounce this assault on our country.» He added that in his opinion «Trump and his agents are losers.» The US, UK and France have launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites as well as a Syrian military base in Homs. The airstrikes are a response to a claim of a supposed chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them 'staged' and a 'fabrication.'
