JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Syrians all across the First Coast said they're scared about any military action in their county. They're so concerned, they've set up another anti-war protest in Jacksonville.

Tony Yakoub still has family in the county. He said he's concerned his family might not be safe for long if there's a strike on Syria by the United States.

Yakoub, like many Syrians in the area, said he wants the conflict to be resolved peacefully. He said the lives of his family could depend on it.

"I'm all for peace, I believe in peace, and peace will bring back family values," he said.

"Bombing and killing created chaos", Yakoub added.

The anti-war protest is scheduled for Saturday at 1:00pm at Memorial Park.
