Iraqis set fire to US flag in protest of Syria strikes


Protesters burned American flags during a protest in Baghdad on Sunday condemning US-led airstrikes in Syria.

Hundreds gathered in Tahrir Square with Syrian and Iraqi flags, to demonstrate their support to the Syrian people.

Protesters burned several representations of the US flag and then stomped on them, following a string of heated anti-US protests all across the world.

The US, UK and France launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus early on Saturday morning, targeting Syrian civil and military facilities.

The airstrikes were in response to a claim of a supposed chemical weapons attack on Douma last week. Syria and Russia have both denied the allegations, calling them ‘staged’ and a ‘fabrication.’
