Arin Safadi, 24 year old girl from the Druze village of Ein Qinya

Arin Safadi, 24 year old girl from the Druze village of Ein Qinya the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, decided to marry 35-year-old Rabia Safadi from neighboring Syria last September. However, shortly before marriage, she had to sign a document according to which it was deprived of the right of residence in the Golan Heights, and, accordingly, the right to return to his father's house. The reason for this was the lack of diplomatic relations between Syria and Israel. On the same day Arin and Rabia married and moved to Jaramani, a city located near the Syrian capital, Damascus.
