Rehana, The Famous Female Kurdish Fighter Responsible for 100 ISIS Deaths, Has Been Beheaded
This is the female Kurdish fighter known only as ‘Rehana’ and reportedly she has killed over one hundred Islamic State militants. The incredible statistic was outlined in a tweet by journalist Pawan Durani and has gathered thousands of retweets since it was posted October 13th.
Rehana became famous in Kurdish Twitter circles after a photo of her giving a peace sign began to circulate on the social network.
However, recent reports by various different sources including The International Business Times claim that the heroine has since been captured and executed.
ISIS has now gleefully circulated a purported photo of her ‘decapitated body.’ While this is still yet to be officially confirmed it does appear to be true and no evidence or word has come out that she has survived the battle of Kobani.
If true, she will join heralded and remembered much like Kurdish fighter Dilar Gencxemis who blew herself up in an attack the Islamic State outside of Kobani which killed dozens of ISIS fighters.
Fundamentalist jihadists fear a woman on the battlefield. They believe if they die in jihad, they will be rewarded with 72 virgins in heaven. If they are killed by a woman however, they are denied their virgins..
Rehana was part of an independent women’s battalion of the Peshmerga, or Kurdish militia, who are known for their fearlessness and effectiveness in war. The YPJ is an all-female, independent militia which at the frontline takes up arms alongside the males of the People’s Protection Units. She was under the command of the famed female soldier Mayssa Abdo, who herself has become famous for running the operation to keep the Syrian border town of Kobani out of the hands of the Islamic State.
The woman was reportedly a brave Kurdish fighter – and a mother.While beauty kills• While motherhood die• When love ends• The most heinous crime• No worse than that• _
