Oppressed defender.. Rand Al-Adimi
The Yemeni writer, Ranad Al-Adimi, is from the central province of Taiz, where clashes take place between the Yemeni joint military and Saudi-paid militia.
Al-Adimi is a witness of the war in Taiz and wanted to share with you her story as follows:
Fwaz Abdulah was well known as the supporter of the aggrieved people for his tearful eye and his contributing to justice. From the look of his face, it’s easy to know that this face doesn’t belong to a Persian invader or even a magician but a young son of Al-Halima, no more than 38 years of age.
Just a day prior to his death, Fwaz called his family saying ” I’m still stationed here preventing the Saudi mercenaries from stealing and killing innocent people, just pray to Allah (God) for me, I have lost two friends altogether.”
His family begged him to return and leave everything behind him but in a tone of refusing, he said no “I’m not the kind of guy who gives up.”
Alone he faced a militant group, named Al-Hasim battalion, hundreds of them. 24 hours had passed but he, our hero, was still standing on his feet as everything around him was falling down except for his head, that head which used to be kept high and with dignity, the head of the man who Taiz used to get help from.
When the mercenaries had gotten despaired of making a difference with their gun, they attempted to asphyxiate him by lighting up hot peppers. Unfortunately, he ran out of ammo after 24 of resisting. In the end, he died to become a martyr, it’s also worth mentioning that forty persons of the mercenaries faced their death because of the smoke. After they ensured he was dead, they hurried into the place looking for the secret behind his fortitude and resistance.
To their surprise, he was on his own, that proved to them how few they are !!!. In revenge, they tied him to a motorcycle, pulling him across Al-Halima streets among the laughter of those who thought they are celebrating their victory by doing this. On the next day, sunrise occurred to embrace and greet those who have just had enough from the mercenaries’ practices on them.
Abandoning the humanitarian identity, they crucified him. Fwaz deserves nothing but honor and being superior, they really did honor him, in which they kept falling with him ascending to his true place up in the sky.
From Taiz, this hero has emerged, his sacrifice is not any less important than the sacrifice of the one from Al-Basreh “Halaj Al-Basreh.”
