A freelance journalist, who helped YPG for the sake of media relations, told the BBC that the YPG provide weapons, uniforms, food, and accommodation to Western citizens who fought. However, he continued, YPG does not give money to them.

YPG denied they paid off Western citizens who contribute up arms against ISIS.
"I can not say with 100% authority regarding their motivation ... However, the impression I get is that these people have served their country in the armed forces of each and have a strong feeling against terrorism. They see us as a struggle between the struggle of good against evil, "said the freelance journalist.

The Foreign Office said anyone who fought in Syria would be arrested once set foot in England. They will be charged with an offense that relies on their involvement in terrorism.
