Special mission: “Peshmerga Girls”
Saturday, 30 April 2016
When ISIS took control of Mosul and became a stone's throw from the borders of Iraqi Kurdistan, young Kurdish girls rushed to join the ranks of the “Peshmerga” forces. 16 Kurdish women formed in 1996 the nucleus of the Women's Division of the Kurdish forces that became today a military regiment that includes more than 500 women that are working side by side with men. The program’s team went to the high mountains of Sulaymaniyah, met “Peshmerga” girls and attended their training.
