Female fighters form fierce Christian militia to take on ISIS in Syria
They join other all-female groups fighting against Daesh in their heartland
Women from a Christian militia group are taking on ISIS as more females join the battle against the terrorist group.
‘The Female Protection Forces of the Land Between the Two Rivers’ so far has around 50 members graduating from its training camp in the town of Al-Qahtaniyeh in the north east of Syria.
The “Land Between the Two Rivers” refers to the area between the Tigris and Euphrates waterways, which was historically inhabited by Syriacs and is teeming with women eager to prove their worth against ISIS.
