Protesters emerged in their thousands across war-torn Syria after Friday prayers in solidarity with the new opposition coalition and the Palestinians of Gaza.
"We sacrifice our blood and souls for you, O Gaza," demonstrators cried out in the central city of Hama, as they waved the three-starred flag of the Syrian revolution.
Meanwhile, air strikes targeted the eastern outskirts of Damascus and more than 30 people were wounded in shelling on a protest in second city Aleppo, the Observatory said.
More than 39,000 people have been killed since the uprising against Assad's regime erupted 20 months ago, the Observatory said on Thursday.
