Please read our Legal Terms & Policies A A A Email Two British men appear to have gone to Syria to help Kurdish forces defend the besieged city of Kobani from Isis, according to a report.
Jamie Read, of Newmains, North Lanarkshire, and James Hughes, from Malvern, Worcestershire, believed to be a former British soldier, are apparently in the Kurdish region of Syria, an American called Jordan Matson told The Observer newspaper. Mr Matson reportedly recruited the two Britons for a force known as the �Lions of Rojava�.
On his Facebook page on Thursday, Mr Read, who says he has trained with the military in France, wrote about what appeared to have been an intense firefight.
�James on me, f*** this, we�re bugging out now, right let�s move,� he wrote, apparently quoting what he had said earlier. He added: �S*** hit the fan, my ass was going 5 to 10 lol.�

And Mr Read then said: �Cheers bro would be lost without you.�
Colonel Richard Kemp, a former British Army officer, told ITV News that the men were not mercenaries.
�I think �mercenary� can sometimes be seen as a pejorative term because it suggests people are going out to commit violence for money alone,� he said.

In August, Mama Kurda, 26, a hairdresser from Croydon, told the Daily Mirror he had joined Kurdish forces to fight Isis in Iraq.
�I am proud to be British and fighting against terrorists to help defend the UK,� he said.
