The battalion known as Al-Mahavir is made up primarily of female fighters who have joined together in order to quell militant expansion in their country.

The difficulties of military acceptance was expressed by one of the volunteers who said "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."

In support of the battalion a male Syrian army commander commented saying "the role of women is not only to bear children. Her role includes heroism. In training and on the battlefield. Therefore, a woman is inclined to greatness."
