Syrian state television has broadcast footage of President Bashar al-Assad attending prayers at a mosque to mark the Prophet Muhammad's birthday.
State television aired the footage on January 24 showing Assad kneeling at the Al-Afram Mosque in Damascus next to Syria's chief mufti.
Assad's last appearance in public was on January 6 when he dismissed calls for his resignation.
Religious Endowments Minister Muhammad Abdel Settar was also at the mosque.
Settar called earlier on January 24 for "million-man prayers" at mosques on January 25 to call for a "return to security and safety in the homeland."
According to the United Nations, more than 60,000 people have been killed in the 22-month-long Syrian conflict.
