Body parts, bloody battles and being one of the boys: Model who went to fight ISIS in Syria reveals horrors she saw on the frontline

Tiger Sun, 46, gave up her life in Canada and went to Syria in March to fight Islamic State jihadis

She worked as a ‘spotter’ for Kurdish troops, using binoculars she identified jihadis for snipers to take out

The former model told how the sight of bodies don’t ‘haunt’ her and how she once ate her lunch next to a ‘pile of brains’

Despite being a stunning blonde she said she was treated in battle like ‘one of the boys’

A former model who swapped her comfortable life to fight ISIS in Syria has told of the horrors of her time in battle on the frontline.

Tiger Sun described seeing a little girl who had been blown up by a landmine die because the Kurds had no medical training.

She also revealed how she had stepped on a charred finger while on patrol – but could not even find the body it had come from.

The former model, 46, fought jihadist fighters from Islamic State for four months with the Kurdish YPJ (People’s Protection Units), until her legs buckled under the weight of her kit and malnutrition. This finally forced her to return home to Canada.

Tiger revealed that while women fight alongside male soldiers, sexual relationships do happen, although they are kept secret.

But she said despite being a ex-model she was treated as an equal during battle.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Tiger said: ‘I witnessed things I never could have imagined.

‘I stepped on a finger once – it was charred black and bent at a weird angle. The body it came from was nowhere in sight.

‘I watched a little girl die from her injuries from a landmine explosion because the Kurds have no medical training or equipment.’

The mother-of-one, who was born in Zambia, left Vancouver, Canada, for the battlefields of the Middle East after a Lebanese man she was in a relationship with left her for an arranged marriage.

She also saw an ISIS propaganda video featuring John McGuire, a white convert jihadist, from Ottawa, and it prompted her to go and fight.
