    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.
