(WATCH) Meet The Canadian Model Fighting ISIS In SyriaScreen Shot 2015-12-08 at 11.54.32 AM
Meet Hanna Bohman, a 46 year old Canadian model also known as Tiger Sun who is currently fighting with Kurdish forces in northern Iraq against ISIS.
Bohman was inspired to fight after watching ISIS propaganda on the internet and connecting with the all-female battalion of the Kurdish forces known as YJP. Thus far, she is far from impressed with ISIS.
“They’re not some giant, holy juggernaut of ultimate damnation for unbelievers, they’re just a bunch of filthy, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging pigs who run away at the first sign of resistance. Really nothing more than a thorn in the side.”
Her first combat experience came just hours after arriving when she went off rogue with some other westerners in search of ISIS. Hours later, after realizing the flaws in their actions, were matched up with 12 Kurdish fighters and expected to take a bridge that lead to a town with over 100 ISIS fighters.
“We spent the rest of the day fighting for that bridge, which was also the last time a sniper would take a shot at me, the bullet passing so close over my head I felt it. We held the bridge over night while reinforcements arrived, and the next day they took the city, which by now had mostly been abandoned by Daesh.”
Bohman says however, her time in Iraq and Syria hasn’t been all combat but far from it. She says 95% of her time is socializing, cooking or standing guard.
Here are some videos about her:
