Video: FRANCE 24 meets foreigners fighting with Kurds in Syria

In Syria, hundreds of young Westerners have joined the YPG (Peoples' Protection Units), a Marxist-leaning Kurdish force which is fighting the Islamic State group in the north-east of the country. Our reporters met two of these volunteers: a young Frenchman from Bordeaux and an American from Charleston, South Carolina. They told us why they left everything behind to come to Syria and take up arms alongside the Kurds.
