Up until three weeks ago, Thwaiba Kanafani, the 42-year-old engineer and mother of two was an active member of the Free Syrian Army, scoping potential targets in Syria, sleeping on the concrete floor of rebel bunkers, or co-ordinating rebel activities in nearby Turkey.

Ms. Kanafani returned to Toronto after she ran out of money, and because she needed to care for her children, she says. She hopes to rejoin the war effort as soon as she can.

In May, the trained engineer became one of the few women to enlist as a soldier in the Syrian rebel movement that has been fighting to oust Syria President Bashar al-Assad for the past 19 months.

“People are dying over there today,” says Ms. Kanafani’s husband, Mohamed Abdalla. “We’re talking about thousands of people, hundreds killed every day. I’m Canadian, and we all as Canadians should do something to stop this disaster.” (Photo: Tyler Anderson/National Post)
