A group of Syrian Americans rallied outside the White House on Saturday to mark the three-year anniversary of the protests that set off Syria’s civil war.
Jehad Ajlani: “If I raise the flag in this area, that gives me a lot of satisfaction, and it shows the people in Syria that we’re here for them. They’re not by themselves.”
An estimated 146,000 people have been killed since the conflict began on March 15, 2011, roughly half of them civilians. We’ll have more on Syria later in the broadcast.
