Several demonstrations supporting the government have intensified since last Sunday. On Tuesday, hundreds of people gathered in front of the Arab League office in Damascus.

In the Arab World, women cut their hair to show disrespect for men. One of the demonstrators explained that they cut their hair to prove they are ashamed of such Arab positions which contributed to issuing the resolution against Syria. (Prensa Latina)
