Martyrs' Day (Arabic: عيد الشهداء‎) is a Syrian and Lebanese national holiday commemorating the Syrian and Lebanese nationalists executed in Damascus and Beirut on May 6, 1916 by Jamal Pasha, the Ottoman wāli. They were executed in both the Marjeh Square in Damascus and Burj Square in Beirut. Both squares have since then been renamed to Martyrs' Square.
