Issued on: Modified:
A French woman was arrested on the 8th of September at the Istanbul airport. Turkish authorities accuse her of plotting a suicide attack on behalf of the Kurdish PKK. The young woman fought in the ranks of the YPG, the Syrian branch of the PKK, in Syria. Youngsters from Western countries, and France in particular, are being drawn into the Syrian conflict, either in the ranks of the jihadi factions or the Kurdish ones. They risk to kill each other on Syrian soil and to face the Turkish army, an ally and NATO member. And they will return to their countries trained and radicalized.
