They are called “Female Protection Forces of the Land Between the Two Rivers” (Tigris and Euphrates) and these 50 women are taking a stand against ISIS and their slaughter of Christians.
This new force is fairly new and consists of 50 mothers, daughters and friends.
One woman that goes by the name Babylonia said her husband encouraged her to join the force and that she saw this war as a fight over her children’s future.
“I miss [my children] Limar and Gabriella and worry that they must be hungry, thirsty and cold. But I try to tell them I’m fighting to protect their future… I’m a practicing Christian and thinking about my children makes me stronger and more determined in my fight against Daesh.”
Female armies like these are becoming more common and join the ranks of forces like the People’s Protection Units militia, or YPG in Syria.
A newly formed Christian female militia, comprising around 50 graduates, is fighting the Islamic State terrorist group to protect Christian areas in Syria’s Hasakeh province.
The new battalion is called “Female Protection Forces of the Land Between the Two Rivers,” which refers to Tigris and Euphrates.
