All-female rebel group fights in Aleppo

Members of rebel force "Our Mother Aisha" carry out range of duties, including monitoring Syrian army.

    Before the war broke out in Syria, they were teachers working at the same school.

    Now they are part of an all-female rebel force "Our Mother Aisha", fighting against President Bashar al-Assad's government.

    The women say it took some time before they were accepted by other opposition fighters.
