Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets on Friday (November 1) in Idlib province and Aleppo countryside, chanting anti-Russia and Assad militia slogans and confirming the continuity of the Syrian revolution and condemning Assad and Russian bombardment on Idlib.

The anti-regime protests took place for the tenth consecutive week in Idlib city and Idlib countryside’s villages and towns, including Maaret al-Nu'man, and near Bab al-Slamah crossing in Aleppo countryside.

The demonstrators asked International community to press Assad regime and Russia to stop killing civilians and to release the detainees.

The demonstrators also expressed their support to public protests in Lebanon and Iraq.

Russian warplanes launched multiple airstrikes on Idlib countryside, preventing thousands of civilians from joining the demonstrations.

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.
