Last Friday, protesters in Syria burned Russian and Iranian flags as they took to the streets to speak out against the regime. Today's Friday, so protesters again took to the streets. This time, some were spotted burning pictures of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. Haartez reports:
The Syrian regime, of course, has been fighting back.
The AFP reports: "At least eight people were killed during anti-regime demonstrations on Friday across Syria, including four in two different suburbs of the capital Damascus." In total, over the course of the last few months of protests, "At least 1,000 people have been killed and 10,000 others arrested since the revolt began mid-March, rights groups say."
