A Kurdish woman known only as Rehana is said to have taken the lives of more than 100 members of the Islamic State.
The unbelievable accomplishment was hailed in a tweet sent by journalist Pawan Durani two days ago, saying the killings had been carried out while Kurds defended the Syrian city of Kobane.

The International Business Times reports, however, that several sources have stated the woman was captured and executed.
A photo that claims to show her decapitated body is reportedly in circulation.
But, like her 100 killings, Rehana's death has yet to be confirmed.
They fight on the front line with their male colleagues and make up 7,000 to 10,000 of Syrian Kurds battling against the Islamic State.
Aside from Rehana, the most famous member is Dilar Gencxemis, a 20-year-old mother of two who killed as many as 23 militants when she self-detonated during the battle for Kobane, according to the IB Times.
The Kurds are gravely outnumbered by the Islamic State but were able to seize Kobane with the help of ramped-up airstrikes from the US.
