On April 12, Syrian students organized a demonstration to express their anger against the US aggression in Syria.
People approached the UN building in Damascus and protested holding placards echoing words of gratitude to the Syrian army, Russia and Iran.
The head of the branch of the Syrian Student Union at Damascus University, Iyad Talab, told that the protests were aimed at condemning the US attacks on the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat near Homs.
“By this demonstration, students condemned the military actions of America in attacking the Ash Shai’rat airfield. The pre-prepared staged footage of White Helmets was used by America as a pretext for an air attack on the Syrian Arab army, which was daily defeating terrorist organizations,” Talab said.
He further said that students just like the entire Syrian people have suffered from terrorist attacks.
“When militants tried to stop scientific activity using bombs many students died. The number of victims reached 130 people. But we have never seen initiatives from the UN to condemn the criminal acts of terrorist groups against students,” the head of the branch said.
According to him, after the demonstration, he and his students will send a letter to the UN secretary-general.
