BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – Scores of people hit the streets of the Palestinian city of Ramallah, in the central West Bank on Saturday, to protest against the US-led airstrikes on multiple government targets in Damascus.

Demonstrators held banners and chanted slogans, condemning the US intervention in the region and expressing solidarity with the Syrian government.

The US, UK and France launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting alleged chemical weapons sites as well as a Syrian military base in Homs.

The airstrikes are in response to the claims of an alleged chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them “staged” and a “fabrication”.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
