They believe that God is on their side – but there’s nothing ISIS fears more than a woman.
As is the case with everything else, there’s a religious motivation for that fear. According to the Kurds fighting ISIS (who have a number of mixed-gender and all-female militias), ISIS believes that they won’t go to heaven if they’re killed by a woman. In other words, no 72 virgins for them.
That being said, you’d think being killed by a woman in combat would be the worst thing that could happen to them. But at least in that scenario, they know they’re running the risk of death in combat. An even more embarrassing fate? Being the victim of revenge from a woman you’ve enslaved.
An Iraqi woman has reportedly killed an Isis commander after he forced her to become a sex slave for his fighters.
The Isis commander, only referred to by his nom de guerre Abu Anas, was allegedly murdered by an unidentified Iraqi woman on 5 September in Mosul, Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) spokesperson Saeed Mamouzini told al-Sumari TV.
According to Mr Mamouzini, the woman had been captured by the Isis commander and coerced into marrying several of the man’s fighters three months ago.
The claims follow documented examples of Isis – also known as the Islamic State – systematically abusing women and girls within their captured territory.

Good riddance to him! Not like he was going to heaven in the first place, anyway.
