The women, mostly in their early twenties, say the rare spectacle of female fighters can be an advantage against the vile group because if they are killed by girls they believe “they won’t go to heaven”.
The Women’s Protection Units, a faction of YPG, were formed three years ago and have been hailed as a vital forced for retaking Kobani.
"They believe if someone from Daesh [ISIS] is killed by a girl, a Kurdish girl, they won't go to heaven. They're afraid of girls.
YPJ, the rebel militia fighting against ISIS in war-ravaged Syria, makes up more than 20 per cent of those fighting against the Islamic extremists.
The women’s military success is a far cry from the world females are constrained to under ISIS rule.
Muslim girls are married off from the age of nine and those from religious minorities are raped and enslaved.
It comes after a sick online community of ISIS-supporting women, in which jihadi suicide bombers are celebrated and terror attack victims are mocked, were uncovered.
The digital cell of female extremists operates on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook and boasts members in countries ranging from Germany to Indonesia.
The group, named Free Our Sisters, offers a chilling insight into the world of jihadi wives and supporters.
