DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:00 P.M.) – On Saturday, Nibal Madhat Badr became the first ever woman to assume the rank of Brigadier General in the Syrian Armed Forces.

This comes just one day after the president’s brother Maher Al-Assad was appointed to Major General ahead of a coming Daraa offensive.

Although female Syrians have served in the armed forces for decades, they are now being integrated on a larger scale to beef up the military’s capabilities. For instance, a batch of all-female police officers graduated in Damascus two days ago.

It is not yet known what battlefield the SAA will deploy Brigadier General Badr to.

The worst insult to macho takfiris : women kicking their butts!
Israelis understood for long that women can absolutely fight efficiently.

The difference is that the Syrian women soldiers are killing terrorists who are invading their country, and the ”Israeli” women soldiers are killing innocent Palestinians and stealing their land.

Also, the Zio-Wahhabi entity called ”Israel” is supporting those macho takfiri terrorists.
