Syrians throughout their history were forced to defend their country from waves of foreign invasions by empires, by colonial powers, and lately by hundreds of thousands of terrorist. To defend our country, we paid a hefty from our finest men and women who martyred to preserve our Syria we cherish.
The martyrs children have a special place in the hearts of the Syrian people and surely in the hearts of the first couple seen in this video commemorating Martyrs Day on 06 May 2013 in a Martyrs Children school. This was at the height of the US-led War of Terror against Syria and when almost a hundred thousand terrorists were surrounding the Syrian capital Damascus from all sides.
The Martyrs Day was remembered when the Ottoman criminal Jamal Pasha hanged dozens of Syrian intellectuals to put down a growing discontent to his ugly empire and their crimes against the people of the Levant, instead of putting down the rebellion, this crime ignited what later was known as the Great Arab Revolution in 1916, it was one of the main reasons of the collapse of the Ottoman empire until the pariah Erdogan showed up, the most hated person in our region, who wanted to revive this ugly period of our history and establish his empire.
