Protesters hold peaceful demonstration in support of Syrian refugees

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A peaceful demonstration was held in Huntsville to raise awareness for peace and hope for Syrian refugees.

The demonstration lasted about an hour on the corner of Whitesburg and Airport Road, and the North Alabama Peace Network, Huntsville Islamic Center sponsored the event.

"We came here because news came that in Syria they destroyed and killed in one hour 250 people, innocently from the kids and the women and the innocent civilians," said Ragab Abdalmoneim who was in attendance.

They said they want to raise awareness, not only for Syrian refugees, but also for the area of Aleppo, Syria and the killing of women and children there.
