Syriac Women’s Union in Syria organizes training course for Syriac women

NORTH AND EAST SYRIA — With the aim of empowering Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) women to be familiar with social and political developments, the Syriac Women’s Union (SWU) organized a three-day training course at Martyr Ishtar Academy in North and East Syria.

The course included lectures and theoretical lessons on the struggle of Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) women through history, as well as introducing women to the principles of first aid. Practical military lessons on how to disassemble, reassemble, and operate various weapons platforms were given by trainers from the Beth Nahrin Women’s Protection Force (Ḥaylawotho d’Sutoro d’Neshe d’Beth Nahrin, HSNB).

The defense aspect of the course was organized to prepare women for defending the region amid the continuous Turkish threats against North and East Syria.
