Picture by Owen Holdaway[/caption]Xate Shingali, a former Yazidi singer leading 123 females against ISIS is preparing to take the fight to ISIS. The women, between 17 and 30 years old, from Northern Iraq are fighting back for the atrocities brought forth by ISIS as they attacked the northern Iraq villages in the Sinjar province in August 2014. The Brigade was stood up by Shingali on July 2nd after being granted special permission from the Kurdish President. As shared on The Daily Mail:

The women of an all-female Yazidi batallion is risking death - or worse - to fight back against the ISIS thugs who abducted, raped or murdered thousands of their people.

They were brought together by a renowned Yazidi s nger Xate Shingali, who formed the 'Sun Girls' batallion to take on Islamic State on the battlefield in Iraq.


If her troops are ever caught by the enemy, they will either be killed or, more likely, be held by the extremists as their personal sex slaves.

Even the youngest, just 17, brushes off that terrifying prospect, adding: 'Even if they kill me, I will say I am a Yazidi.'

ISIS kidnapped thousands of Yazidi women and very young girls when it stormed their villages in Sinjar province, northern Iraq, in August 2014.

Those who escaped from their clutches have told of how they endured unimaginable cruelty and sexual abuse at the hands of the ISIS fighters they were forced to marry.

The rest of the story can be found at The Daily Mail.
