Thousands of Syrians have taken to the streets to criticise Washington for blacklisting a rebel group, with many saying that it was President Bashar al-Assad who was a “terrorist”.
The protesters on Friday demonstrated under the slogan: “There is no terrorism in Syria except that of Assad”.
The US was hoping to marginalise Jubhat al-Nusra when it labelled the group a terrorist organisation.
Instead, the group has gained popularity, especially in the villages and towns of Syria.
