Asia Ramazan Antar was a member of the Kurdish all-female brigade of anti-ISIS fighters battling the terrorist organization in their homeland along the Syrian border. She died fighting ISIS at 22 while liberating the town of Minbic from ISIS control.
Born in Qamishli, Syria, Antar joined the Kurdish military’s Women Protection Units in 2014. Since that time she was part of several military campaigns that targeted and took out ISIS forces. She became known online as the “Kurdish Angelina Jolie” for her supposed resemblance to the actress. Do you think she looks like Angelina Jolie?
The real Angelina Jolie is going to be super confused why she is trending in the news for dying today.
Yeah, I don’t see it either. She looks nothing like Angelina Jolie. However let’s put that aside for a moment as there is one thing we can all agree on: this totally badass chick died fighting for her people! She died fighting to take her country back from the terrorist scum that have desecrated it.
What is even more badass about the fight that Antar put up, is that apparently ISIS is scared shitless of all female military brigade known as YPJ. That’s because if an ISIS fighter gets KILLED by a WOMAN in battle they are completely DISHONORED. That means they don’t get their 72 virgins. LOL, nobody tell them that’s not really a thing.
According to the YPJ website:
“The YPJ have been instrumental in the battle to take back control of Kobani from ISIS. These women fighters know that, if captured, they will be raped and killed; therefore they fight knowing that they must succeed in battle or become a suicide warrior to avoid being captured. The YPJ is also thought to be feared by ISIS, who believes that if a female kills them in battle, it will be a disgrace and dishonor, and will prohibit them from entering paradise.”
Respect! No really, do you think she looks like Angelina Jolie?
