Yezidi women from Shingal have joined the fight against ISIS in Raqqa, the city where they were once held captive by the extremist group.
“When I started fighting, I lifted some of the worries from my heart,” Heza told AFP. “But it will be full of revenge until all the women are freed.”
Heza was held captive by ISIS for ten months in Raqqa, bought by five different ISIS fighters.
She and other women from the Shingal Women’s Units are now fighting alongside the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in eastern Raqqa.
Some 3,400 Yezidis are still believed to be under ISIS captivity, including Heza’s sister.
