Vigilantes Fighting ISIS: Voluntary Boots on the Ground

Who are the factions fighting ISIS? As world powers continue to withhold deploying troops in Syria to fight ISIS, some people have taken matters into their own hands. As a result, soldiers from at least 13 countries and states are now fighting ISIS in Syria. Vigilantes come from an array of backgrounds. In addition, the number of vigilantes isn’t precise.

Vigilantes are Loosely-affiliated With

  • Never Surrender: Dutch biker gang
  • Veterans Against ISIS: US military vets
  • Lions of Rojava: YPG US arm
  • FRAME: Vigilante smugglers
  • White Shroud: Secret guerrilla militia
  • AMO: US group trains civilians
  • SOLI: US group trains civilians
  • NPU: Trained by AMO/SOLI

Some vigilantes receive $100 monthly stipends. Most get nothing. The good news? If you want to join, there’s no stopping you. It’s legal, and nearly 100% of vigilantes have made it to Syria.
