Protesters demanded that the Salvation Government dissolve itself and stop imposing taxes and fees on residents, and called for a general strike in the city.
The protesters declared their solidarity with Kafr Takharim, which was attacked by Tahrir al-Sham with various types of weapons on Thursday morning.
