Al-Khansaa Brigade (Islamic State / IS - Female Unit / ISISF)

On 02 February 2014, the Islamic State of Iraq and ash Sham (Islamic State of Iraq, ISIS or ISIL) announced the formation of Al-Khansaa, a female brigade, with the purpose of exposing male activists who disguise in women’s clothing to avoid detention when stopping at the ISIL checkpoints. The ISIS requires women to be single and aged between 18 and 25 as conditions for joining the brigade. Each female will receive a monthly salary of 25,000 Syrian liras (less than $200 USD) and is only allowed to be employed within the brigade. The brigade is currently not used for involvement and engagement in acts of terror, with their role as that of executing counter-insurgency operations in ISIS controlled areas. NOTE THERE IS A SECOND ALL FEMALE BRIGADE ANNOUNCED AT THE SAME TIME: Umm Al-RayanCentre of OperationsAl-Khansaa brigade is active in Raqqa: Image: Selfie-style released on Telegram IS affiliated channel 11 April 2016Social Media RecruitmentIn April 2015, some members of…
