Kurdish Female Warriors On The Front Lines Fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria PHOTO+VIDEO

 

 notoriously fierce segment of the Kurdish security forces are striking terror into the hearts of ISIS terrorists - female fighters. The Jihadists have no problem slaughtering defenseless women but they don't like facing armed female warriors in battle -- because they don't believe they'll go to heaven if they're killed by one of them. 

The first official female unit was formed in 1996 when women began combat training in opposition to Saddam Hussein’s regime. They've earned a  reputation for bravery and skill in the battlefield - so much so Peshmerga women are sometimes compared to Amazons.  You could call them the Kurdish Peshmerga's First Cavalry Amazon Battalion. 

The all female unit’s commander, Col. Nahida Ahmed Rashid, said "more women are enlisting today to defend Iraq’s Kurdish region from Islamic State extremists."


And these soldiers don’t only swell the fighting ranks; they’ve recently become a part of front-line strategy.
“The jihadists don’t like fighting women, because if they’re killed by a female, they think they won’t go to heaven,” one female soldier said.

Women are also involved in Kurdish resistance to the Islamic State’s advances in Syria. Some 30 percent of the armed wing of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) there, which also fights against Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s Syrian branch, are female.
Such soldiers join up not simply to defend their cities from invading armies, said the commander of the first all-woman PYD brigade, but from the extremist ideas they would carry with them.

“I believe in a greater cause, which is protecting our families and our cities from the extremists’ brutality and dark ideas,” she said. “They don’t accept having women in leadership positions. They want us to cover ourselves and become housewives to attend to their needs only. They think we have no right to talk and control our lives.”
