Syrian President Bashar al-Assad attended Eid al-Adha prayers at the al-Rawda mosque in Damascus on Tuesday.
Images show Assad attending the Eid prayers, and greeting officials and worshippers as he arrived at al-Rawda mosque.
This is the first Eid al-Adha since the Syrian troops recaptured the suburbs of Damascus earlier this year.
Eid al-Adha is the second of two globally celebrated holidays in Islam, the other Eid Al-Fitr, with the former honouring Ibrahim or Abraham’s will to sacrifice his son to God before Jibra’il or Gabriel’s intervention.
Animals are often sacrificed on the holiday to remember Ibrahim’s offering.
