 The Nobel Peace Prize laureate and activist Tawakkol Karman has sent condolences on the death of Mai Skaf, a Syrian actress known for her strong opposition against Mai Skaf. 

Karman expressed her sincere condolences to the Syrian actress’s family and loved ones, noting that the late actress provided a bright picture of what an actress should be like when it comes to freedom and anti-tyranny.

"The revolutionary actress, Mai Skaf, had always believed in the Arab Spring and in the spring of Syria, which will, sooner or later, put an end to the reign of the fascist Assad family,” wrote Karman on Twitter.

Karman indicated that Skaf’s inspiring voice and struggle would last forever even if she had passed away. 

She added, “Mai Skaf died while hoping for a generation that has an ability to make the future of Syria, pointing out that her hope will come true.
