Hawar news agency had a chance to interview the refugee Fawza al-Ali who lived a painful story during the battles. Fawza al-Ali fled the battles and lost her husband before exiting and fleeing the mercenaries.

Fawza is 22 years old, and married 2 years ago when she was at 20.

Several years ago, the battles approached her house in Maysaloun hamlet north of al-Raqqa city, and IS mercenaries arrested her husband Issa Muhammad on charges of being a blasphemer, and they took him to an anonymous place according to what Fawza stated.
