The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) took the last ISIS stronghold on the 23rd of March, 2019, marking an end to the 5-year Caliphate. Many different armed groups were involved in its fall; among them was the Kurdish anti-jihadist militia People’s Defence Unit (YPG).
We follow one of their volunteers, the Swedish Kurdish combat medic Firat, as he returned to Syria to fight to last battle against ISIS.
In part three, Firat tells us about how he feels safer on the frontline than back in Sweden and about the impact the war has had on civilians.
