Syrians in several towns & villages of rural Idlib & Aleppo gathered outside mosques & in town squares last Friday to condemn the carpet bombing by Syrian & Russian war planes since last April that has killed hundreds, injured thousands, & forced nearly 550,000 to flee from their homes. Their placards restated the demands of the Syrian Arab Spring uprising, in particular the overthrow of the Assad dictatorship & some denounced the silence of antiwar forces in support of Assad & Syrian & Russian bombing of civilians.

Stand with Idlib. Stop the bombing! All foreign military forces & mercenaries out of Syria!
