Baghdad(ANN)-Raghad Saddam Hussein, daughter of Iraq’s former president, called the late Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh her “hero and martyr” Tuesday.

Hussein’s message comes a day after Saleh was shot dead by Houthi gunmen on Monday.

“I extend my condolences to the family of the martyr Ali Abdullah Saleh, to his daughter Balqis, his son Ahmad, and to the family who supported the martyred President Saddam Hussein, his family, and Iraq and many Iraqis after the occupation. Despite all that has happened and will happen, our faith lays in Allah, He who will bring us victory, it’s all to the good my martyr,” she tweeted.

“Actions speak louder than words, the man stood with us, the family of the martyr Saddam, since the brutal Tripartite Aggression in 91, the subsequent events and the unjust siege on Iraq and its people, and also the brutal US invasion. The man had a memorable position after the Arabs sold their dignity, and sold Iraq and its people and destroyed the eastern gate of the nation,” she added in another tweet.

“We do not commend anyone who is now in the hand of the one and only. We ask Allah for mercy and forgiveness and to preserve Yemen and Iraq and the Arab and Islamic nation and all the free people in the whole world, and peace be upon you and Allah’s mercy and blessings,” she said.
