    You gotta love them!

    The Kurdish female fighters bringing the fight to IS

    Around a third of the Syrian Kurdish force is made up of women. On the front lines they fight alongside the men, taking the same risks and facing the same dangers.

    When they see a woman with a gun, they're so afraid they begin to shake.

    Diren, 19 Female Kurdish fighter

    "Women are the bravest fighters," says Diren, taking refuge from the scorching heat in the cool of an underground bunker.

    She and three comrades are having lunch: flatbread, cheese and watermelon. Many of the fighters, like Diren, 19, are still teenagers.

    "We're not scared of anything," she says. "We'll fight to the last. We'd rather blow ourselves up than be captured by IS."

    Like the followers of the Islamic State, most Kurds are Sunni Muslims. But that is where the similarities end. Diren says that, to the fanatics of IS, a female fighter is "haram", anathema: a disturbing and scary sight.

    "When they see a woman with a gun, they're so afraid they begin to shake. They portray themselves as tough guys to the world. But when they see us with our guns they run away. They see a woman as just a small thing. But one of our women is worth a hundred of their men."

        The Kurds must be laughing in their beards that they got the idiots at BBC to believe this drivel.

        There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

          Oh, come on --- go with the flow! I'll find this article for you in the New York Times, THEN you'll bleeve it!

          And here it is!

          Some have said the use of female fighters against ISIS is nothing more than a stratagem cooked up by Kurdish leaders. Because ISIS’ primitive, oppressive attitudes toward women and extremist interpretations of Quranic law, it was thought that they might be afraid of dying at the hands of a woman. “The theory is that ISIS fighters believe if a woman kills you, you don’t get to go to paradise,” writes Zack Beauchamp for Vox.
          The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.
