Golan SyriaPeople in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights have held a mass rally to mark Syria’s Independence Day.
During the rally which was held on Wednesday, the demonstrators waved portraits of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian flag to commemorate the 68th

anniversary of the country's independence.
They also expressed support for the Syrian government and army in their fight against foreign-backed Takfiri militants.
The Israeli regime captured the Golan Heights during the Six-Day War of 1967, when it also took control of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Tel Aviv annexed the Golan Heights in 1981.
The move has not been recognized by the international community, and the United Nations regards the Golan Heights as an occupied territory.
Similar demonstrations were also held on Thursday and Wednesday ahead of the event across Syria. The rallies were staged in the capital Damascus, Sweida, Hama and several other cities.
Syria gained independence from France on April 17, 1946.
The celebrations come as government forces have managed to recapture strategic towns along the Lebanese border in recent weeks.
On April 15, the Syrian army liberated the towns of Assal al-Ward and Jab’adin in the south and Housh Arab in the Qalamoun region, near the border with Lebanon.
Last week, government troops drove out foreign-backed militants from the strategic city of Rankous in the Damascus countryside.
On April 13, the Syrian president said the war in the country has shifted strongly in favor of government forces, adding that there is a growing popular awareness about the goals behind aggression against Syria.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
