Syrian bride wants 15 pro-Assad heads as dowry
Mother of martyrs also demands 50 decapitated heads of pro-Assad troops in case of divorce
A Syrian bride-to-be has asked her fiancé for 15 decapitated heads of pro-Assad troops as her dowry and set up a marriage termination clause worth 50 more decapitated heads.
The 50-year old Aicha Faaourya, who lost her husband and four sons in anti-Assad demonstrations, made her demand to 75-year-old Hajj Ahmad Ramilat during a sit-in outside the Syrian embassy in the Jordanian capital Amman this week.
The woman nicknamed Umm Shouhada, meaning the mother of martyrs, vowed to dedicate the rest of her life to the fighting the regime of President Assad.
Hajj Ramilat – member of a Syrian tribal council and is nicknamed "the council’s wise man” – also lost two sons in fighting against Assad’s forces.
He accepted the heavy dowry challenge and pledged to have 15 pro-Assad troops beheaded for her love. In case of divorce he pledged to also provide the additional 50 decapitated heads of pro-Assad forces.
The Syrian civil war has killed more than 160,000 displaced more than 2 million outside the country after four years of fighting.
