Turkey protesters march in support of Assad
Rally in Antakya calls for government to end support for Syria’s opposition as flood of refugees continues.
Published On 1 Sep 2012
Thousands of Turkish supporters of Bashar al-Assad have marched through the town of Antakya, in southern Turkey, demanding that their government end its support for Syria’s opposition.
Many protesters are fed up with the number of Syrian refugees who have fled into Turkey, something that has become a political issue along the tense border region.
During their rally, the protesters called for peace, but a peace that still leaves Assad running the country.
