Today, Friday 27-9-2019, protests were held in several areas under the slogan “Al-Salhiyah Martyrs Friday”, according to Deir Ezzor 24 network correspondent.

Our correspondent said that after Friday prayers, hundreds of Deir Ezzor’s people marched to the industrial zone roundabout near Al-Salhiyah town, where they gathered and shouted slogans against the Iranian militias and Assad forces, demanding that they leave villages and towns east of the Euphrates.

Our correspondent added that the protestors raised slogans in support of Idlib province, and other ones glorifying the Syrian revolution.

Our correspondent noted that the Syrian democratic forces (SDF) tried to prevent the protesters from entering Al-Salhiyah town north of Deir Ezzor through setting up temporary checkpoints at the entrance of the town, but the protesters were able to pass them, approaching the crossings controlled by Assad’s forces in Al-Salhiyah.

This Friday was given this name after a number of civilians were killed by Assad’s forces during last Friday’s protests.

It is indicated that for the second consecutive Friday, protests took place in Deir Ezzor countryside to demand the Assad’s forces and the Iranian militias leave the eastern Euphrates in order for the displaced people to be able to return to their homes in the areas controlled by Assad’s forces east of the Euphrates, such as the towns of Hatlah, Marrat, Khasham, Tabiya Jazeera and Al-Salhiyah.
