July 16, 2021
The Syrian Women’s Commission condemns the heinous and cowardly assault on activist and cartoonist Hadeel Ismail in the town of Azaz in northern rural Aleppo.
The Commission wishes Hadeel a speedy recovery and a swift return to her activity and her role as an activist and influencer.
We call on the police force and the competent authorities to identify the perpetrators and bring them before the judiciary to receive fair punishment.
The Commission reiterates it stands by the women journalists and activists who are working in these difficult circumstances and facing enormous challenges in order to convey the voice and suffering of the people.
