It has been reported that the bodies of three Americans fighting with the Kurdish YPG against ISIS in the northern Syrian city of Manbij had arrived to the U.S. on Tuesday.
Jordan MacTaggart, William Savage and Levi Jonathan Shirley were among a big contingent of foreigner’s fighting for the YPG.
A border official of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) told the Iraq-based Rudaw that the corpses of three Americans were transferred to KRG-controlled Northern Iraq through the Semelka border town.
“The three American fighters were killed during Manbij liberation operations. A U.S. consulate delegation attended the ceremony of returning the three corpses as they were handed over to them,” Shawkat Berbahari said.
These foreign fighters illegally enter Syria to fight with the YPG, who are affiliated with U.S. and E.U. designated terrorist group PKK.
