Female soldier for Kurdish freedom fighters is 'captured and beheaded by ISIS killers' who posted gruesome pictures online

(UK Daily News) -- A female Kurdish fighter who became a poster girl for the Kobane resistance movement after a picture of her making a peace sign was retweeted thousands of times on Twitter has reportedly been beheaded by Isis.

The woman, known by the pseudonym Rehana, was celebrated as a symbol of hope for the embattled Syrian border town after a journalist tweeted a picture of her making a ‘V-sign’, claiming that she’d personally killed 100 Isis militants.

The message was retweeted over 5,000 times, but there are now claims Rehana, who fought for the Kurdish YPJ, or Women’s Defense Unit, may have been killed after gruesome pictures began circulating on Twitter of an Isis fighter purportedly holding aloft her head.

Her death – reported on several sites including 9News.com – however, is unconfirmed and at the time of writing the YPG (People’s Defense Unit) and YPJ have yet to respond to MailOnline’s request for a comment.
