Alma Shehadah’s story
Her role in the armed work began by transporting ammunition that she used to hide under her clothes and pretend she was pregnant, in order to pass through the regime’s checkpoints. After that, she started learning how to use weapons in order to protect herself while aiding fighters on the front lines. She became known as “the free”.
She sold her gold and her possessions to pay for medical equipment, beds and staff, and established a hospital in Ein Tarma that was named after her, “The Free”. She kept on going to the front lines with the fighters to aid the wounded.
