She has shared the pain of the surviving citizens of the Alawi villages of Lattakia where terrorists had perpetrated a horrible massacre and kidnapped a large number of women and children at the beginning of August 2013. Two weeks later survivors recognized their kidnapped children on professional videos that were being diffused around the world as proof that the Syrian government was gassing people.
