You probably know the United States dropped bombs on ISIS in Syria last week.
You might know Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates joined forces with the U.S. to launch the airstrikes.
But most of the world doesn’t know the pilots leading those strikes. And one pilot in particular is making history.
Meet Major Mariam Al Mansouri. Not only is she the first female to join the Emirati Air Force, she also served as team leader in the U.S. coalition airstrikes.
The 35-year-old is also the first woman from any Arab country to attack Sunni terrorists. Yousef Al Otaiba, the UAE’s ambassador to the United States, confirmed her involvement:
“She is a fully qualified, highly trained, combat-ready pilot and she is on a mission.”
