Members of the Syrian regime political security branch stormed the Zahi Samin secondary school in Jaramana city, south of Damascus, last week, arresting a teacher, Nibal Zeitounah in front of her students.
Zeithouneh, also a poet, was teaching Arabic language at the time. She was taken to an unknown location.
Friends and colleagues at the school expressed surprise at the arrest that did not appear to have any reason.
Zeitouneh is from Al-Qaria, in the Sweida province. She was born in 1962 and is living and teaching in Jaramana.
