Tel Aviv: 200 people rally in solidarity with Syrian people

March 31, 2012 21:37

At least 200 protesters assembled in a central Tel Aviv park to voice solidarity with the Syrian people, Army Radio reported Friday.

Demonstrators called on Western nations to intervene in Syria to stop the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad from "slaughtering" members of opposition groups.

Some protesters carried signs which read "Nearly 10,000 Syrians have been murdered, where is the United Nations?" according to the report. 

More than 9,000 people have been killed in the security forces' crackdown on an uprising that began as peaceful protests but turned increasingly bloody when armed rebels began to bring the fight to Assad's forces.
