From Jerusalem to Damascus

#This_Is_Damascus.. The Syrian revolution flag flies high in Jerusalem

#This_Is_Damascus.. The Syrian revolution flag flies high in Jerusalem. Photograph shared on Twitter by @prometheus_92

On Twitter, @prometheus_92 shares this photograph of the Syrian revolution flag near the Dome of the Rock Mosque in Jerusalem as part of his participation in the hashtag [ar] #هنا_دمشق, which also has an English equivalent #This_Is_Damascus. The aim of the hashtag is to draw attention to Syria's blackout – after the Internet and communications with the outside world has been cut off for the third day in a row.
