The war in Syria has affected millions of civilians; there are virtually no women in the country which have not been affected by it. Some women have taken up arms and are fighting the terrorists shoulder to shoulder with men, defending their homeland and their lives.
The Bein Nakhrein female military unit serves in the Democratic Syrian Forces in Al-Hasakah in the north-eastern Syria.
Along with Bein Nakhrein there is the Women’s Self-Defense group. Women are also fighting in the ranks of the Kurdish security forces, As-Saish, and in the Assyrian group an-Natora.
