Daraa - SMART

People demonstrated in the city of Umm al-Mayazen in the Daraa governorate, Southern Syria, demanding the release of detainees and the overthrow of the Syrian regime.

On Thursday, activists in the city reported to SMART that dozens of people demonstrated in the city's square, demanding the immediate release of the woman who was arrested by the Syrian government security forces three days ago in the Daraa city center, and the rest of the detainees.

The activists added that the demonstrators in the city of Umm al-Mayazen (10 kilometers east of Daraa) chanted for freedom. They also demanded the release of the detainees, the overthrow of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and the expulsion of Iranian militias from the area.

On June 21, 2020, hundreds of people demonstrated in Busra al-Sham, demanding to overthrow the Syrian regime and to expel Iranian militias and the Hezbollah militia from the area. The demonstrators cried out, “Syria is free, Iran get out,” “Live long Syria and down with Bashar al-Assad,” “Curse your soul Nasrallah,” and “We kneel only to God.” The demonstration followed the killing of five members of the Fifth Legion.

On June 18, 2020, dozens of people demonstrated against the Syrian government in the Syrian government-controlled town of al-Karak al-Sharqi, 24 kilometers east of Daraa, Southern Syria.

People in Syrian government-controlled areas suffer from several crises, including the absence of medicine and water, high food prices, increased hours of rationing electricity, in addition to the lack of household gas and fuel, as a result of repeated economic sanctions imposed on the Syrian government by the United States and the European Union.
