ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Local Syrians are voicing their opposition to U.S. and international involvement in Syria.

This protest took place Wednesday at Airport Road and Union Boulevard in Allentown.

It's the second protest in as many days.

Local Syrians are backing Syrian President Bashar Assad.

They say he's worthy of their support despite the allegations.

"If he was killing our people why would we support him, said Sabrina. "Why would we standing out in the streets, going to rallies, going to festivals trying to help him if he's killing our people?"

Other local Syrians also claim the Syrian rebels want an Islamic state -- not a Democratic one.
