Residents of the Syrian capital took to the streets to voice their anger at the recent missile strike, launched against their country by the United States and its allies over a still-unproven chemical weapon attack.

People in Damascus flocked to the city center to take part in a spontaneous rally held in the wake of a US-led missile attack that was launched hours earlier against targets in the Syrian capital and in other parts of the country.

The city residents were waving Syrian flags and chanting anti-US slogans, condemning the attack and praising the efforts of Syria’s armed forces, which managed to intercept a large number of incoming missiles.
