In the Damascus district of Midan, protesters carried banners saying “S.O.S” and “We want international protection”. An eyewitness said protesters had called for the execution of President Assad.

“Ramadan and Eid are over, but our demonstrations are continuing to the end,” a protester in Midan told Al Jazeera.

“Today’s slogan 'Death not Humiliation' is the best answer to the regime. We want to tell the regime and the world that the Syrian people want freedom and dignity, not humiliation, under Assad’s regime.”
