The fate of so many displaced young male Syrians is to end up as mercenaries in an endless war. Turkey is probably hiring any Sunni Arab that will take the pay. I have no doubt there are former Islamist militia amongst them. And Iím sure thereís plenty of people who have fought for Al-Nursra and the SDF as the career options arenít that great when youíve been ethically cleansed and live in a war zone.
