EN - Friday, 12 July 2019

“They raped me all day before assassinating me.”

These words, Suzanne der Karkour, will never be able to pronounce them. On tuesday, the lifeless body of  this Christian woman was found in Yaqubiye in Idlib governorate. In her sixties, she died under the repeated assaults of the jihadists of al Nusra.

Since the beginning of the war, Suzanne took care of the fields of olive and fruit trees of the family property, while teaching Arabic to the children of her village. Once retired, she continued her volunteer work with the young people of the church of the village of Kneye to help them obtain their baccalaureate. Born in a wealthy family, she was not compelled to give classes to live and yet, she continued her mission, till the end.

Tuesday, July 9, worried by her absence, the priest of the city sends parishioners to look for her. They find her lifeless body lying on the ground of her field, alone.

The autopsy reveals that Suzanne has suffered the torture of repeated rape since the afternoon of Monday until early morning of Tuesday.

In Martyrdom, she joined the sky and her thousands Christian brothers, dead in the arenas of barbarism.

Idlib is at the center of media attention, but which one... which one will talk about Suzanne, from this "war trophy" for the barbarians, anchor in the sky for humanity?
