The BBC report that a British man has been killed fighting so-called Islamic State in Syria, Kurdish activists have told the BBC.
Ryan Lock, 20, from Chichester, West Sussex, travelled to join Kurdish forces known as the YPG in August. His family said Mr Lock, a chef who had no military experience.
In a letter seen by the BBC, the YPG said he was killed on 21 December in Jaeber village in the battle for the Syrian city of Raqqa. The letter offered condolences to Mr Lock’s family, saying his loss had “affected us deeply “.
Respect and Rest in Peace Bro.
Now the shit speaks.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: “The UK has advised for some time against all travel to Syria. Anyone who does travel to these areas, for whatever reason, is putting themselves in danger.” Nuff said.
