A nurse in Aleppo committed suicide this week, so Syrian soldiers couldn't enjoy raping her. She is one of several women who have taken their own lives to avoid being raped and murdered by what they consider "animal" soldiers.
In the suicide note she addressed the Syrian opposition and the religious leaders and said the conditions in the city were so awful that
'hell-fire couldn't be worse than this'.
The un-named nurse also said she was killing herself 'because I do not want several members of the Assad Regime to savor raping me'.
There were more than 20 women who committed suicide within one day to avoid these brutal sex attacks.
She wrote: 'I am one of the woman in Aleppo who will soon be raped in just moments..there are no more weapons or men that can stand between us and the animals who are about to come called the 'country's army'.
