Hundreds Protest Against Arab Rapprochement With Syria’s Al-Assad

Protesters demand Bashar al-Assad be prosecuted, the release of all detainees, and the return of displaced Syrians to their homes.

Hundreds of people have taken to the streets of several cities in northwestern Syria to protest against warming ties between some Arab countries and President Bashar al-Assad.

The biggest demonstration took place on Sunday in Idlib, a stronghold of forces opposed to al-Assad, while smaller groups gathered in Azaz – a refuge for Syrians who fled from other parts of the country amid the 12-year war – and Tal Abyad, a town on the Turkey-Syria border, among other locations in the country’s northwest.
