The Kurdish woman gained thousands of fans across the world and was seen as a ray of hope for the Kurdish fighters, who were then outnumbered and outgunned by the Isis. Kobane, a border town near Turkey, has now been liberated of Isis-control.
However, by October, Isis' media wing had spread the rumour that Rehana, the slayer of 100 Isis terrorists who was also known as the 'Angel of Kobane', was captured and beheaded by the Jihadist group.
Rumours ran wild for months; while many media houses were quick to call it a hoax, there was no substantial evidence to prove that Rehana was still alive.
On 2 June, Kurdish journalist Mustafa Abdi posted an image of Rehana flashing her famous victory sign. However, this time Rehana was spotted in civilian clothing without the uniform and the AK-47.
Awesome, if a bit dated, news. I hope nothing has happened to her since.
