Family of 5 persons, father, mother and 3 children.
Father: 49 years, Bsc in mechanical engineering with more than 20 years experience in industrial and oil and gas project, self employed contractor for the last 5 years.
Mother: 40 years, Bsc in mechanical engineering with more than 14 years in oil and gas projects.
Children: 10, 8 and 3 years, 5th, 3rd grade and KG1 consecutively.
Current Status: More than one year ago, I helped my young brother when he decided to quit regime's army by preparing all arrangements for him to arrive to Lebanon. I escorted him to Syrian Lebanese borders and arranged with my friends in Syrian opposition to accompany him to Lebanon, in which his French wife was staying and waiting for him. My brother is married to Louise Tailhades, and they live peacefully with their kid Noah in Leon.
I am peaceful activist and belong to Citizenship Movement, an opposite movement to the current Syrian regime. I, unfortunately, live with my family in Masyaf city, one of most important strongholds of Shabiha in Syria, and continuously and dangerously, I confront many kinds of Shabiha's provocations and barbaric behaviors. My restaurant was closed because they rumored and stigmatize it as a center of some activities of Syrian Opposition, with the effect that nobody, almost, keeps coming to.
Now I do not have any job, and keep staying at home for fear of their unreasonable reactions. Recently, the news started to spread in the circles of my relatives and neighborhoods (the most majority of them are loyal and supporting Assad Regime) that I am the person who encouraged his brother to quit regime's army. I pretend that I do not know anything about that, but these news began to reach Shabiha and Intelligent Services' ears, which means, at the best condition, that I will be subjected to arrest.
The main and serious problem now is that we are minorities by origin and different to our environment at the same time, this made us live in a very aggressive and dangerous surrounding. They don't accept us as different to them, although we live in our home city, and we cannot go anywhere in Syria because we are at least not welcome (as minorities) in other palaces dominated by opposition or ISIS forces. The bad consequences for people like us are doubled, UNFORTUNATELTY.
