A 45-year-old French fighter who introduced himself as ‘Roj William’ is fighting alongside the Syrian Kurdish militia known as the YPG.
The single man from Paris says that he joined these forces three months ago because so many French fighters are fighting with ‘Daesh’, citing the Arabic acronym for ISIS. “I don’t think it’s representative of who we are as French people,” the French fighter added.
