The Italian prosecutor ordered the trial of Maria Edgarda, an Italian citizen who, after joining the YPG / YPJ, the armed branch of the PKK in Syria, has returned to this country. This Italian girl was recruited by the PKK fans in social media in 2017. She joined YPJ, an armed branch of the PKK in Syria, and returned after a while.
“Maria and others like her are a threat to Italy’s security because they have been trained to use firearms by an illegal group, and this is dangerous for Italian society,” the prosecutor said. “Maria introduces herself as a hero by posting armed video files in social media, while encouraging the promotion of violence.”
