Syrian Golan women play key national and political role against occupation

Since the first day of Israel’s occupation of the Syrian Golan in 1967, women have engaged in the battle of steadfastness and peaceful resistance against occupation that has practiced inhuman and suppressive acts against Golan people.

This is what the Syrian Lawyer and Women’s right activist Rasha Alhalah said during an interview with the Syria Times e-newspaper about Syrian Golan women’s role in confronting occupation.

Mrs. Alhalah made it clear that the struggle of Syrian women in the Israeli occupied Golan manifested in preserving national identity and clinging to the land in order to confront the Zionist military rule.  

“Golan women, who are one of the strongest Syrian women, have brought up their children and educated them to be patriotic to their homeland, and they have enhanced family relations. They have played a pivotal role at economic, social and political levels. They played key national and political role as they took part in protest and secret struggle against occupation forces despite being arrested and killed by Zionist entity,” the lawyer emphasized.

Dean of Syrian Detainees


The hero Sudqi al-Maqt is an example to be followed by all freedom fighters all over the world. Al-Maqt has been defying all the racist oppressive measures  taken by the Israeli forces of occupation with the aim of bringing him to his knees and end his resistance, steadfastness and loyalty to his people and homeland.  The Zionist regime has aggravated its repressive measures against al-Maqt and his colleagues, because of his role in disclosing the relationship between the armed terrorist groups operating in Syria and the Zionist entity and the unlimited support offered by the Israeli government to terrorists, especially weapons and medical equipment. The new unfair sentence against the Syrian prisoner al-Maqt is the subsequent of his role in unveiling the involvement of the Israeli occupation authorities in providing arms, health services and financial support to the armed terrorist groups, particularly Jabhat al-Nusra, in Syria.

On October 9th, 2018, the so-called Israeli High Court of Justice issued a verdict which supports al-Jalil Court’s sentence of 14-years imprisonment against the dean of the Syrian and Arab detainees in the Israeli jails, Sudqi al-Maqt, from Majdal Shams town in the occupied Syrian Golan who was re-detained by the Israeli authorities on February 25th, 2015, after he had already spent 27 years in Israeli prisons without any moral or legal justification.

The sentence constitutes a new legal scandal to be added to Israeli entity’s long record of war crimes and violations of the international law and the international humanitarian law and international human rights law as well as the UN Security Council Resolution No. 497 which prevents Israeli entity from taking punitive measures against the Syrians in the occupied Syrian Golan.
