'Abaq al-Yasmine' carnival honors mother of 5 martyrs

The Citadel of Damascus, which protected the city in ancient centuries and was hit by mortar shells during the ongoing terror war on Syria, hosted yesterday the 'Abaq al-Yasmine' carnival.

The carnival, organized by the 'Syrian Eagles' team and the 'Mother of Martyr' Group , honored several actors, actresses, singers, and the mother of 5 martyrs Deya'a Abed al-Hamwi, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The agency reported that the carnival's program included national songs performed by 'al-Farah' Chorus and Circacsian dances that were received with warm applauses from audiences.

Over the past six years, a lot of activities have been held by government and Non-Governmental Organizations to honor martyrs' families and people, who played key role in defending the homeland in many fields.


Syria has faced – since 2011- a foreign-backed terror war targeting its army, people, civilization and infrastructures in accordance with US-Zionist plot that seeks to fragment the region and to have hegemony over its wealth.
