Should "The soldiers were supported by the public" be an acceptable answer?

The public sound not very much. It is more the people who are attending something, not a population. Here they talk about the people who live in a certain country and public is not over 2000 people.

Can 'The soldiers were supported' be translated also as 'de soldaten waren gesteund' ?
