As the US Congress inches closer to a decision on a military strike on Syria, citing allegations that Assad forces used chemical weapons against the civilian population, activists in Damascus are stepping up their protest against possible attacks.

RT's LIVE UPDATES on Syrian 'chemical weapons' crisis.

Damascene activists protesting possible US strikes on Syria set up a camp at the foot of Qasioun Mountain just outside the capital on Tuesday.  

Qasioun Mountain, a symbol of Damascus and Syria, is home to many security and military buildings and institutions and thus is expected to be one of the targets for the airstrikes. Protesters rallying beside the place called themselves a “human shield” and hold banners featuring slogans such as “No more American bombing democracy” and “Hands off Syria”.

We are here to express our loyalty to our country in the face of American threats. We don’t want what they did in Iraq over chemical weapons claims to be done in our country,” one of the rally participants told RT.

For more on the protest watch RT’s Maria Finoshina report from Syria.

I only expect 2 pple to understand wat I'm bout to write, Obama and Putin. I've been on various channels this week with God, The Creator and his exact words were if any outside force attacks Syria, then they will be evaporated. Evrything points that the cabal .........  Obama, your progress is pathetic and even the great Drake agrees "what were the Galactic Federation High Council thinking when they put Obama in charge of this mission." Obama, the cabal has your nuts in a vice grip.

  


May i suggest you to shove your bullshit into somewhere more appropriate
