On Friday, Kashmiri protesters torched effigies of US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Srinagar, the summer capital of Kashmir. The demonstrators condemned what they called the US and Israeli interference in Syria. The protesters also chanted slogans against the US - led Western imperialism and said the US and Israeli intelligence services - CIA and Mossad - were fuelling the flames of sectarian strife among Muslims in Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan. Protests were also held in several other towns of the Muslim - majority valley. On Sunday, Syria said the Israeli regime had carried out an airstrike targeting a research center in a suburb of Damascus, after al - Qaeda - affiliated groups fighting against the Syrian government suffered heavy losses. According to Syrian media reports, Israeli rockets struck the Jamraya Research Center. The Jamraya facility was also targeted in an Israeli airstrike in January. Syria has been experiencing a deadly unrest since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of army and security personnel, have been killed in the chaos.
