Alma Shehadah’s story

Alma says: “In the air force branch I was exposed to all sorts of torture; they shaved my head and accused me of being a political activist. All this torture was to avenge the security officer that I had slapped. They used to blindfold me and take me to another room where they’d take off my clothes and hit me, I used to be physically abused and raped by more than one person. My screams used to reach the outside of the prison, hoping in vain that someone would save me.
