"But why are they in Syria in the first place?"
The went to fight when they saw their fellow Muslims being massacred and driven into torture chambers with the help of British military equipment Nigel

Britain supported the rise of Assad even though they were warned by Amnesty about the mass murder and torture that he was instigating
