HELP? Info on American woman going to Syria

Jump to last reply

My daughter who is married to a Syrian is going to visit Syria in July with him . They will being visiting family and I think most likely staying in a Hotel . Will she have to wear a cover on her head?? Or dress different ?
I am very nervous about her going there, especially at this time, with everything going on.. Everyone says as long as she is with her husband, BUT I don't trust anyone and I'm worried about her. I know being an American, and a woman doesn't count any more and she has no rights in the Middle East . She has no fear of going ..My Husband and I have a lot of fear as to what could happen ???
Am I being paranoid ?
Jean
