ALEPPO- More than one and a half million Syrian citizens on Wednesday flocked to Saadallah al-Jabri Square and its sub-streets in Aleppo to participate in a mass rally organized by Aleppo Youths Gathering.
The participants in the rally stressed their adherence to the independence of the national decision, and their rejection of all forms of foreign interference in Syria's internal affairs.
They also affirmed their determination to continue the process of comprehensive reform under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad.
The participants stressed the public's role in preserving national unity and defending the homeland in the face of the conspiracy.
National flags fluttered and national banners on unity and amity were held high in an amazing panoramic picture of the Syrians' great love for their homeland.
Loud voices chanting slogans that warn of misleading media and false news aimed at spreading chaos in the country raised by the gathered people who called for preventing conspirers from achieving their goals.
The participants sent a popular letter of thanks to Russia and China in appreciation of their historic stance at the UN Security Council which did justice to the Syrian people and brought hope back in restoring balance to the international equation.
The participants raised three 150-meter long and 80-meter wide flags of Syria, Russia and China, delivered speeches and recited poems on defending the homeland and facing the conspiracy.
Head of the Lebanese Unification Movement Weaam Wahab said it is these crowds who give legitimacy and constitute a spontaneous referendum that reflect the will of the Syrian people.
He added that Aleppo people conveyed their message to the conspirators that nothing will undermine Syria's resistant people "who offered support to Palestine, Iraq and Lebanon when other countries stood helpless watching them burning," wondering at those who still call for foreign interference after its consequences in Iraq and Libya.
Senior Christian figures considered the mass gathering of Aleppo people as a stress on rejecting foreign interference and that the Syrian people are the only decision makers when it comes to their internal affairs.
Sheikh Ahmad Shlash of Bu Saraya tribe hailed the sacrifices of the Syrian army to put an end to the armed terrorist groups' crimes, stressing the tribe's support to the reform process led by President al-Assad.
Deputy Chairman of Armenian Protestant Community said "today, the Syrian people stress their unity and loyalty to the homeland," adding that the Syrians gathered on protecting their country and moving forwards in reforms.
Mohammad al-Deiri, head of the Youth of Aleppo gathering, the march's organizer, said this activity was organized in expression of loyalty and love to the homeland and support to the comprehensive reform program.
"To Russia and China we will say: 'We won't forget this honorable stance of yours,'" al-Deiri added.
