Syria is secular and does not discriminate against women. Woman have education, employment, full rights in society. In this regard, Syria has close ideological alignment with western countries. On the other hand, most other countries in the Middle East where religion is far stronger and women have a limited role in society.


On Saturday, Nibal Madhat Badr became the first ever woman to assume the rank of Brigadier General in the Syrian Armed Forces. This comes just one day after the president’s brother Maher Al-Assad was appointed to Major General ahead of a coming Daraa offensive. Although female Syrians have served in the armed forces for decades, they are now being integrated on a larger scale to beef up the military’s capabilities. For instance, a batch of all-female police officers graduated in Damascus two days ago.

Humans teh only species that kills females and has its females killing in war .
Women (I have the right to kill or be killed in war )
Man Instinct is to protect females ( with them we cant procreate Even wolfs wont kill there own females .
Its a sure way to extinction .
Btw not sorry ladys my instincts say protect you not alow you to go get your self killed .
Most women want this Its there instincts to find a man strong enough to protect them from lions tigers and bears o my .
Once out there and bullets are flying at you its a little late to decide you want to live .ll
Still a few of us men left sure you can fight sure you can kill sure you can DIE in war just as we do . All it proves is your just as stupid as men are killing each other.

Before we write off women in combat look at the USSR in WWII. Some of their best snipers were female.

You would have thought that if this was truly the case a woman would have held a senior office before now. Not sure why one appointment makes Syria "equal" because the evidence is that Syria is not as you want to paint.

Women in Syria - even before this terrible civil war - lived in a society of significant gender inequality. Read the report and become slightly more aware..

Gender equality index


But they still face various degrees of inequality in the social sphere, as well as potential condemnation if they are overly visible and active in the public sphere.

No chance of any deal regarding Assad's resignation with the west. There's never been, never will be! No matter the propaganda.
Any such proposal is a threat to Syrian state integrity, and is not on the table. There's never been any agreement, neither in 2012 nor at any other moment.

Expand your thought horizon as the Us / EU / CIA arent the only agencies capable of an assassination. The country is question actually has a proven track record in that area as well, especially against Hamas and Hezbollah and the Nazis that went on to hide in and work with with certain Middle Eastern countries, like Syria.

Maybe expand your reading material to something outside of the Soviet Union propaganda.

Good for her.

Hopefully she does well in her new position.

The Syrian Republican Guard has an all female unit, the Lionesses of Syria. They've proven themselves quite capable. I can only imagine the humiliation suffered by those Islamists they have bested in battle.

Any strike on Syrian army forces will result in the wipe out of large group of crusaders in Afghanistan.
