A sisters words to her martyr brother!

Sister of martyr Khaldoon Al-Absi, Hana'a Al-Absi wrote on her Facebook page some very touching words that brought tears to the eyes of many people; they promised Allah and the martyrs and they will walk on the same road. "My brother fell as a martyr today.. when is retribution?? I am hurt, my father has tears in his eyes, my mother's heart is broken, his son is orphaned and his wife is widowed.. So how do I not reprise? Allah will get you Ali, I swear we will revenge" Hana'a said.

While Bushra Abdul Fatah added, "Rashood, this is how his dad calls him. This is Rashed, son of martyr Khalood Rashed Saeed Ahmad, the martyr that fell today in the protest in front of Education Office in Taiz. This picture was taken as soon as Rashed found out that his dad passed away, a broken heart is what Rashed has now. His dad wasn't holding a weapon, nor was he holding a knife, his dad was going around with water to help the protesters and gives them a drink. His dad held out his phone to video tape the snipers on rooftops of the Education Office and the building that has Al-Nagashi pharamcy under it. Snipers from security forces saw Khaldoon handing out water and documenting their crimes, they shot him directly and killed him."
