War against ISIS/Daesh: International Brigade members of YPG arrested and locked up in a cell with Islamic State fascists (Kurdistan, Iraq)

Four foreign fighters of YPG were arrested in Iraq as they returned to their respective countries (two Americans, a Russian, and an unconfirmed fourth). They were eventually released after 23 days of detention. Robert Alleva Fonda and Michael (both Americans) have confirmed that they had been locked in the same cell that members of the Islamic State were in, despite having repeatedly said to the official of the KDP [Kurdistan Democratic Party, rightist party in power in Iraqi Kurdistan] that they were members of YPG. There is no need to specify the risks that have incurred the four being locked in the same cell as the Islamists.

Long live the revolution in Rojava
