Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets on Friday (Sep. 6) in Idlib province, chanting anti-Russia and Assad militia slogans and confirming the continuity of the Syrian revolution and their commitment to the UN political solution.

The anti-regime protests took place for the second consecutive week in Idlib city and in Idlib countryside’s cities and towns, including Maarat al-Numan and Sarmada and near Bab al-Hawa Border Crossing.

Demonstrators from Binnish, Saraqib and many other villages and towns joined the demonstration in Idlib city.

Many demonstrators told Orient correspondent that they ask Turkish president and International community either to protect them, or to open the borders so that they can migrate to Europe. 

Turkey's warning on opening gates of Europe for the refugees was "neither a threat nor a bluff," Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay said on Friday.

Other demonstrators assured that they insist to stay in Syria and that they will never leave their homeland.

Idlib is the largest part of Syria controlled by opposition with a population swollen by Syrians who were displaced by the Assad regime and its allies’ advances in other parts of the country.
