Al-Qamishli, Syria, Oct. 18, 2018. Protesters raise a banner saying, "There is no honor in crime" during a protest. The Women's Coordination Directorate of the Kurdish Red Crescent organized a protest against women murders, or so-called honor killings, in the city of al-Qamishli in Northern al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria. The protesters demanded a new law to prevent honor-related crimes, pointing at several cases that they were allegedly unable to close with existing laws. This protest was held in the memory of the Syrian criminal court' vindication of a man who killed his sister. The court called it an honor killing, pushing the Syrian Women Observatory Organization to consider this day the International Day of Solidarity with Victims of Honor Crimes.
