Iran, June 22, 2020—Hatred regarding the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran has been escalating even further in Syria and Iraq. On Sunday, June 21, locals in the city of Basr al-Sham of Daraa province in southern Syria held a demonstration against the regime of Bashar al-Assad, according to the Step news agency, an outlet voicing the views of those opposing the Assad regime. These demonstrators also called for the expulsion of all forces supported by the Iranian regime from Syrian soil.
This was the largest protest demonstration in this province in the past two years, according to the UK-based Syrian Human Rights Observatory. The protesters were demanding all forces financed, armed, trained and supplied by the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran, and the Lebanese Hezbollah, to immediately evacuate the province of Daraa, the report adds.
The Step news agency also published footage of this rally showing a large group of people chanting, “Iran, round up your dogs,” and “No to Hezbollah, No to Iran.” These demonstrators also called for the overthrow of the Bashar Assad regime ruling their country.
The Anadolu news agency wired a report indicating the people of Daraa in Syria held a rally protesting the mounting of a statue of former Syrian dictator Hafez Assad in the area of “Daraa Baladeh.” The participants in this demonstration were seen chanting:
“Viva Syria, Get lost Assad!”
“God, Syria and Freedom”
“Syria belongs to us, not the Assad family”
In Iraq reports indicate hatred of the mullahs’ regime ruling Iran is escalating at an unprecedented scale. One opinion poll shows the Iraqi people’s abhorrence of the mullahs’ regime in Iran has quadrupled in the past three years alone.
An independent organization conducting public opinion polls has recently announced the results of its latest questionnaire indicating that Iraqi public opinion regarding Iraq has dropped to around 15 percent approval today in comparison to 70 percent back in 2017, according to U.S. CENTCOM commander General Kenneth McKenzie in remarks made on June 20.
People in different cities of Lebanon took to the streets in demonstrations on Thursday night, June 12, protesting skyrocketing prices, unemployment, government corruption and the destructive influence of Iran-backed parties and groups, according to Al Arabiya.
The demonstrators were seen setting tires and large trash canisters on fire to block numerous roads in Beirut and a number of other cities. These rallies in Lebanon stretched from the city of Tripoli in the north to Saida in the south. The demonstrators were chanting against the malign influence of Iran-backed Hezbollah. In Beirut, branches of two different banks, and in Tripoli a branch of the country’s central bank were set ablaze. Locals are reportedly furious over the bank’s policies.
Reports indicate demonstrators began clashing with government forces in Beirut’s Riad al-Solh Square. The demonstrators were also able to block a number of main roads, including the street leading to the Lebanese capital’s Ring Bridge.
The Dahieh district of southern Beirut witnessed locals holding rallies also protesting the policies of Lebanon’s Central Bank. People in the city of Baalbek set tires and large trash canisters on fire to close roads in the southern areas of this city. Supermarket owners in this area closed in an act of protest to skyrocketing prices. In the city of Tyre locals were seen pouring into the streets and protesting poor economic conditions.
In Syria, people in the city of As Suwayda in southwest Syria once again held a demonstration calling for the overthrow of the Bashar Assad regime, and the expulsion of the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and the mullahs’ proxy forces from their country.
Demonstrators called for the toppling of Bashar Assad’s regime, protesting economic, political and security conditions deteriorating with each passing day, according to a Reuters report.
The locals of As Suwayda, a city controlled by Assad’s forces, rallied for the fifth consecutive day on Thursday, June 11, against the ruthless Syrian dictator, according to Orient News. The protesters were seen throwing shoes to the image of Bashar Assad’s father, Hafez Assad. This is a major insult in the Arab World.
