Lionesses for National Defense

The Female Commando Battalion, part of the Syrian Army, was established in the summer of 2014 and consists of around 800 female volunteer fighters.
As the military conflict in Syria progressed and the number of casualties rose women received more and more positions in the ranks of the Syrian Armed Forces. The first brigade of women, named "Lionesses for National Defense,” was formed in 2013.
