BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – A 72 year old Syrian woman was recently hailed for her heroics during an Islamic State (ISIS) attack on her home in the Al-Sweida Governorate. 

The 72 year old woman successfully repelled Islamic State terrorists with her AK-47 after they attempted to enter her home in rural Al-Sweida on Wednesday.

According to the woman, she resisted the Islamic State terrorists during a fierce gunfight, killing two of the militants before the Syrian military arrived on the scene.

The woman was badly wounded after she was shot in the stomach; however, she kept resisting the terrorists, as her four young grandchildren were also present in the house.

The grandchildren were between the ages of 7 months and 7 years old; they were saved from the ISIS terrorists that were kidnapping and murdering civilians in Al-Sweida.

In the video below, the woman recounts her long battle with the Islamic State terrorists:

My hat’s off to her. A good move on her part as the kidnapped women and children of Sweida currently held by ISIS are now being threatened with execution.

Her bravery in the face of such evil will be remembered for many generations of her family and she deserves to live a long life in peace.

syrian people power – arm the civilian women esp against cowardly zio terrorists who target women and children like the vile illegitimate entity

Yes a very good idea. With the unbelievable amount of weapons they confiscated they should able to arm civilians. I think the government should start a voluntary bounty hunter type program where civilians get paid per head for each one captured or killed. The terrorists are cowards and you can bet some are lying low and others are out in the wilderness hiding. Civilians living in rural areas are probably most vulnerable.

Wow, She was able to save her grandchildren, herself, and took out two ISIS. Also she survived a surgery at the age of 72! Unfortunately I was not able to hear her story due to the language barrier. I suspect she will be taking a trip to Damascus after her recovery or else she will be paid a visit by the Assad family. God bless her.

This woman is a class act….Israel should be ashamed of themselves (if they have any) for supporting such vile scum…

Mis respetos por la honorable señora, digno de imitar.
La liberación de la mujer está en ellas mismas, así como lo hizo YPJ en norte, igual la mujer Árabe debe despertar y rechazar el sometimiento de la mujer como pretenden hacer los terroristas en Siria.

I would have liked to view the video. It would not load. Every time that happens, I suspect repression of truth, which I find reprehensible. It flies in the face of “know the truth, and the truth shall set you free”. They, whoever they may be, but power elite comes to mind, want to keep us as sheeple..blindly following and believing twisted news, while the proceed on their quest for power and even more money.
