Al-Suwayda - SMART

On Wednesday, protesters from al-Suwayda, Southern Syria, blocked all roads leading to the city center, demanding the release of the women and children that were kidnapped by the Islamic State (IS) after the IS executed one of the women on Oct. 2, 2018.

Locals, Druze leaders, and armed fighters from local opposition factions participated in protests, and blocked all roads leading to the al-Suwayda city center near the Syrian government governorate council building. The protesters parked vehicles and blocked the entrances to the city.

The protesters headed for the governorate council building, sat on the building's stairs, and prevented employees from entering. They also prevented cars from parking near the building.

The Syrian government sent Druze leaders who are loyal to the Syrian government to talk to the protesters. The Druze leaders told the protesters to head for the Tulul al-Safa area and fight the IS to release the kidnapped women instead of protesting. The protesters expelled the leaders and threatened to announce an open sit-in.

After the IS announced the execution of one of the kidnapped women, tension rose in the city, and people fired guns into the air in an expression of anger. The IS executed the woman after Druze leaders withdrew from the negotiations for the kidnapped people.
