… A desperate and determined Kurdish woman takes action !
Arin Mirkan (aka Deilar Kanj Khamis) is a kurdish mother of two children. Knowing what will happen to her and her family if ISIS takes Kobane (Kobani) she used their own tactics against them, carried out a single attack against ISIS, and killed TEN of the rabid islamists in the process.
SYRIA – A Kurdish woman fighting Islamic State militants carried out a suicide bomb attack to slow their advance on a besieged Syrian town, it was claimed today.
Deilar Kanj Khamis, known by the nom de guerre Arin Mirkan, blew herself up at an IS position east of the border town, killing ten jihadists.
It was the first known case of a female Kurdish fighter carrying out a suicide bomb against IS. According to tributes on Twitter, she was a mother with two children, though this was unconfirmed.
While there is little else known about the woman, she was a member of the Women’s Protection Unit, a branch of the Peoples Protection Units (YPG). The force has more than 10,000 female fighters who played a major role in the battles against the IS group.
Yesterday the force suggested all of their fighters would martyr themselves if it meant defeating IS and protecting the pivotal border town. (read more)
Female Kurdish fighters are some of the strongest people on the planet – their resolve is incredible and their loyalty toward their family and community is beyond admirable.
BBC Recently interviewed some Kurdish women for a story on Kobane, they have very clear eyes on what is to be expected if they fail. For them they know fighting ISIS is fighting for the lives of their children. If they fail the barbarity they would experience at the hands of ISIS is unfathomable….
Failure is not an option.
