Jeremy Corbyn has been backed by an unexpected group of people - British volunteers fighting Isis in Syria.

A group of British volunteers who are fighting alongside the Kurdish militia have praised the Labour leader for his remarks on foreign policy in the wake of the Manchester Arena bombing.

Corbyn called for the Government to rethink its policy on the 'war on terror' to admit it wasn't working, and how it was involvement in conflicts like Iraq and Afghanistan which raised the risk of domestic terrorism.

It was a speech which drew a fair amount of criticism and led to allegations he was "excusing" terrorism.

However, the British members of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) and the affliated International Freedom Battalion, an international socialist militia, said the comments show that the Labour leader knows the way to stop Isis, by cutting its funding at source. 

In a statement which they sent to indy100 , they claimed the longer Theresa May was Prime Minister, the more unsafe people in the UK would become.
