Gen. Abdullah when asked why she had been arrested by the Syrian army.Dulaimi and her new husband Khalaf were formally arrested by the Lebanese state in December 2014 .Their arrest came after the August 2014 clashes in the northeastern town of Arsal that saw Daesh and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham briefly overrun the town and take more than 30 Lebanese Army and police personnel into the mountains upon their retreat. Abdullah disagreed, saying she was arrested because she was using forged documents.
