Rumors are soaring that Rehana was possibly captured and killed by Islamic State militants, but the claim has yet to be confirmed. No matter what, Rehana is truly a hero, and her bravery should not go unnoticed. She’s just one of many female Kurdish fighters.

More from the International Business Times:

Several Kurdish women have been lionised for the bravery and determination they have shown in attacking Isis.

The women belong to the Yekineyen Parastina Jin, or Women Protection Units (YPJ). Thefemale contingent earned international renowned after one of its fighters blew herself up in Kobani killing several Islamic State (also known as Isis) militants.

Dilar Gencxemis, known by her nom de guerre Arin Mirkan, was a 20-year-old mother of two who detonated herself as she ran towards Isis fighters, killing as many as 23 of them.

Kurdish resistance is increasingly relying on its female fighters to save the town on what appears as a desperate fight for survival. According to various estimates, female fighters make up between 7,000 and 10,000 of the Kurdish forces fighting in Syria.

The YPJ is an all-female, independent militia which at the frontline embrace arms along with their male “comrades” of the People’s Protection Units.
