    The Al-Mahavir battalion, made up primarily of female fighters, conducted military training exercises south of Damascus on Tuesday.

    One of the volunteers described the difficulties of being a woman serving in order to protect one’s homeland. "Eastern society doesn't accept women with guns fighting alongside men. So we had some difficulties. However, we justified our presence and proved our ability to protect the homeland," she said.

      One of the most iconic travel images of the modern age is that of a dog hanging its face out of the open window of a car. Moreover, the speed of the vehicle is not important: during traffic jams, our four-legged friends study the surrounding cars with interest, and on the highway they seem to catch the wind with their mouths.
