Gdo said: My 16-year-old girl, Sama Fathallah Gdo, was kidnapped and she is a student in the eleventh grade. She also suffers from many diseases, including (neurological, psychological, severe depression – isolation, atrophy, and shortness of growth resulting from the neuropsychiatric state, according to the doctors’ report).
Gdo appealed to all international human rights and humanitarian organizations, Kurdish and Syrian personalities interested in the rights of childhood and motherhood, and the Kurdish national movement parties and its representatives inside and outside to work to return his kidnapped daughter to the arms of the family, for completing her education and treatment.
