Activists form human chain, call for end to Syrian bloodshed

Israeli activists continued to rally in solidarity with the victims of the Syrian conflict on Sunday, after a couple of small demonstrations were held on the Golan Heights and in Jerusalem over the weekend.

Demonstrators formed a human chain on Sunday night, stretching from the Russian Embassy to the US Embassy located along Tel Aviv’s coastline, calling called on world powers to stop the killing of civilians in Syria. Russia has been heavily criticized by members of the international community, and particularly by the US, for its backing of the Assad regime during the nearly six-year-long civil war. The US has also been subject to criticism, for not having done enough to stop the war.
