The women fighters who helped defeat ISIS in Raqqa


Some incredible news has emerged this week from war-ravaged Syria, with an all-female Kurdish militia having managed to defeat ISIS terrorists in Raqqa. ISIS’s brutal and terrifying rule has lasted for four years and has seen the rape, mass murder and sale of Christian Yazidi girls and women into slavery. It’s a win for the oppressed Kurdish minority group against the barbarity of ISIS whose brutal atrocities have shocked the world.   

Kurdish female fighters have celebrated in Raqqa this week after the defeat of ISIS militants, whose brutal rule over the city has come to an end after almost four years, CNN reported.

It's an amazing victory for the all-female Kurdish militia against ISIS. When asked what motivated them to dive into one of the fiercest battles against the terror group to date, the women said they did it both for the Kurdish cause and to liberate the women of Raqqa.
