Kurdish women fighters

War with Isis: Meet the Kurdish women’s militia

The Kurdish soldiers relax half a mile behind the front line where they have been battling Isis forces west of the Syrian town of Ras al-Ayn. The women are in no doubt about why they are fighting.

Nujaan, who is 27 and has been a soldier for four years, says that Isis’s “target is women”. She says: “Look at Shingal [in Iraq] where they raped the women and massacred the men. It is a matter of honour to defend ourselves first, and then our families and lands.” Sitting beside her is Zenya, 22, who adds that she also “is fighting for myself and my family”.

    I love it when the woman hating jihadi fags get their big fat clown ass’s kicked by a bunch of Girls. Now we need them to open a can of wup-ass on obama, kerry harf and earnest.

    I would love to see an Israeli-Kurdish alliance (and Netanyahu is hinting at its formation), with the two most formidable female forces as comrades in arms.

    I have this image of Muslim women in military fatigues taking on Muslim women in burkas. I’m pretty sure who would hold the advantage.

      Women are under estimated IMO as a lethal fighting force. Israeli females take no back seat. Kurdish females have the incentive of fighting or being gang raped …. that’s got to be a motivator. Go girls.

    Don’t worry Miss. Justin Trudeau and Tom Mulcair have a shipment of winter coats all ready to send you. That will win your freedom!
