The road to ISIS’ self-proclaimed capital, Raqqa, has been long and hard. The battle rages in the suburbs of the Syrian city. Improvised explosive devices, suicide bombers, sniper fire and grenade-dropping drones have been deployed by the surrounded terrorists.
This film features the stories of fighters in the Kurdish People Protection Units (YPG), as well as European volunteers who joined them. There are also stories of military hospital staff. Dr. Akhiv, a veteran military doctor considers his work a “sacred calling.” Adham, a frontline nurse, joined the field hospital after his brother was killed fighting ISIS. Sema, a Kurdish female commander, left her family to join the fight. “We’re not fighting for a certain nation. Humanity is what we’re fighting for,” she says.
Some Europeans have joined the YPG as volunteers. Rosa left a mundane life in Sweden to fight for women’s rights in Syria. Robin, a volunteer from Germany, got sick of hearing how “someone should do something about” ISIS after every terrorist attack in Europe. He left his girlfriend and a comfortable life to do something about them himself.

  1. Hope Syrian Arab Army destroy this semi traitors groups if they are not cooperate and keep Syrian territorial integrity. If they really want single independent kurdish state they should liberate them from turks

  2. The word documentary doesn't quiet cut it, Documentaries are on a level and this video is on a whole other level.
    Thank you everyone who volunteered to fight ISIS scum when it is not really their war. I know that ISIS had hundreds of foreigners in its ranks for the money and power, and it warms my heart to see foreigners from those same countries joining the other side for no MONEY or POWER, but just to help out their fellow brothers and sisters.
    Thank you so much RT for bringing this to us.

    From Egypt with love!
