I discovered Firat when his pal, one other Swede turned freedom fighter named Mike, reached out. Mike’s introductory e mail sums up Firat completely:
“I’m writing you for a pal of mine who would by no means attain out however his story is wonderful. He spent years preventing ISIS in Syria with the YPG. He isn’t a warfare vacationer!! He left Sweden for Syria after ISIS murdered his cousins and uncle in Syria.”
Firat fought alongside coalition forces on the entrance traces liberating cities from ISIS management. He did this, nevertheless, with only a few assets, coaching, ammunition, funding, and help. What he witnessed by way of ISIS brutality is horrific and has left its scars.
He has a tremendous story that may encourage anybody who wonders how one can change your life and do one thing in regards to the evil issues on this world.
