DAMASCUS, Syria – Syrians gathered in Aleppo to slam US-led airstrikes against Syria on Saturday.
People waved Syrian, Russian, Iranian and Hezbollah flags as they joined hands in traditional Syrian Dabke dance.
Many carried photos of Syrian President Bashar Assad as they decried the US-led attacks on Syrian soil.
The US, UK and France have launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites as well as a Syrian military base in Homs.
The airstrikes are a response to a claim of a supposed chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them ‘staged’ and a ‘fabrication.’
