Anwar Alabbadi said, “The Jordanian engineer, Lubna Mansour, died after her husband killed her with 15 stab wounds in the United Arab Emirates.
The murders of women are very brutal.”
Abu Mahmoud said, “The news of #Lubna_Mansour that she got married a year ago and was subjected to violence and asked for a divorce… O people who have a daughter and ask for divorce, so be from the story of the loneliness that has no money except her husband’s house…”
Just Rehab said on Twitter, “Okay I need to address something, if we are in 2022 and living this nightmare I’m so scared of what our daughters gonna face in the future…
We need justice for the women who died because of nothing!!!!”￼
Abla Abdelhadi said, “4 Arab women in 4 Arab countries murdered by men this week. We’re being slaughtered by the patriarchy. These murders are men’s reminders to Arab women that we’re not allowed to say no to men. This is male supremacy & misogyny.”
Ghaida wrote on Twitter, “It’s heart-rending and gut-wrenching to wake up everyday hearing about a new femicide. Sadly, this is not unique to one country on this side of the planet, and I wonder how long it will take to create a culture where women never endure lack of safety.”
It was leant that the reason for the crime was differences between the victim and her husband, that she was subjected to violence and abuse during their short marriage.
The culprit will face murder charges, with the possibility of death penalty if convicted by the court.
