More than 150 women from Manbij have joined the ranks of the Manbij Military Council to fight against the ISIS. Women partaking in the operation are preparing to form Manbij women’s battalion.

Manbij Military Council member Xaliya Nimet who spoke to ANHA told that women undertake a leading role within the body of the Manbij Military Council. She said women have a strong participation in the Operation Martyr Commander Faysal Abu Layla, and fight against the ISIS on the front lines.

Xaliya Nimet pointed out that women’s participation in the ranks of the Military Council increased  not before but after the beginning of the operation to liberate Manbij. Nimet stated that more than 150 women are currently fighting in the ranks of the Military Council and more are joining the battle every day. She noted that they are preparing to form a women’s battalion at the moment as Manbij women will be mounting self-defense from now on.

Xaliya Nimet pointed out that they were influenced and inspired by the YPJ combatants that supported the Operation Martyr Commander Faysal Abu Layla, adding; “We take strength from YPJ fighters when we see them in the battle field. Manbij women are joining the ranks of the Manbij Military Council thanks to the resistance waged by YPJ combatants.”

Xaliya Nimet called upon all the women in and around Manbij to join the Manbij Military Council to defend themselves.

Who knows, maybe women getting armed may be the hope of the middle east in order to break the macho-bigot crappy society it has? Schooling, law and if necessary guns are much more efficient to protect your honour, freedom and equality of rights than burka and crazy bigots.

Funnily enough it was the 1st World war that speeded up the emancipation of women in Britain. Women’s labour was desperately needed to keep the country and factories running whilst the men were at war. Many women also contributed to the war effort very near the front lines in range the guns.

The thought of a lady being badly injured or killed in battle seems so much worse than such happening to a man. So tragic that they are sensing they have to do this. War sucks with ca capital S.
