Shots fired at anti-government protest in Syria’s Sweida: Activists

Anti-government protesters scattered on Wednesday after their demonstration near a Syrian government building in the southern city of Sweida was hit by a spray of bullets, activists and local journalists said.

Sweida has been rocked by weeks of rallies against the Syrian government, first criticizing worsening living conditions but then spreading to include calls for President Bashar al-Assad to step down.
