The rallies were part of a day of protests against Syrian President Bashar Assad and his troops' imminent offensive against Idlib, the last bastion of rebels in Syria.

Nearly half of the area's residents are already displaced from other parts of Syria and have refused to reconcile with the Syrian government. (Courtesy of Mustafa Alabdullah via AP)
