“District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam stated… during a reception she held in her office today, Monday [June 8, 2015], for the Egyptian journalist Ahmad Qandil… that the Palestinian woman has been a main pillar in the national struggle throughout history, and clarified that she [the Palestinian woman] was ahead of her counterparts in the Arab world.
