On Tuesday, March 1st specialized security forces raided a residential building in Irbid’s northern neighborhood near the downtown area to arrest a group of armed persons belonging to the terrorist group ISIL. Captain Rashed Hussein Zyoud fell martyr to this attack and a few citizens sustained minimal injuries. It might seem that there weren’t many causalities, but the trauma that the inhabitants of Irbid endured was greater than any physical injury.
Tuesday, March 8th was the worldwide celebration of women, and for the first time, the King’s Academy Feminist Club organized a day to appreciate all the women of King’s Academy. The festivities included a poem written and performed by Dina Kuttab ’17, Leen Al-Zu’bi ’17, and Diana Ghazzawi ’18 during the school meeting of the day before International Women’s Day. The poem was a thank-you note to all the female faculty and students, and a reminder to all women to keep working hard towards their goals regardless of what society might say.
