AMMAN - Tens of thousands of Syrians
took to the streets nationwide on Friday shouting that
President Bashar Assad should "leave", extending protests
despite a military assault on restive northwestern towns,
witnesses and activists said.
Ranging from suburbs of Damascus
to the Lebanese border and
the desert bordering Iraq
, included big protests in Idlib
province, where tank assaults on a collection of villages in
hills near Turkey
killed three civilians overnight, the Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights said.
That raised the death toll to at least 14 villagers in the
last two days, it said.
