Kurdish women who have given up everything to fight ISIS militants

‘We want everyone to know that a woman is no different to a man when it comes to defending her country.’

That is the message from a group of incredibly brave women who have signed up to fight for the Kurdish Peoples’ Protection Unit (YPG) against the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS).

The young women, seen practising with AK-47s, said that they were motivated to join the YPG to help repel ISIS advances in their hometowns.
