Women in Combat among the Kurds

The Rojava Kurdish forces have a women's combat unit called
YPJ, and the Peshmerga ("those who face death") of the sometimes
at odds political parties of South Kurdistan in northern Iraq have
women in combat also.

According to my twitter sources, who are close to people in the
situation, some of these women warriors are Christians. I assume
they are Kurds and not Christian Arabs caught up in the situation.
