Tunisian women and their encouragement for the jihad of marriage and that I do not represent them, about any distortion you speak, ignorant, I swear by God, I will respond and say that you are ignorant of society, ignorant of history and facts, and want to falsify reality.

And she continued: «Didn’t many Tunisian women and other Arab nationalities travel for marriage jihad? It was a choice of them or compulsory due to circumstances. Do you not cover the image with the pierced sieve? Yousra Al-Masoudi ».
