What the actual story is?

He has traveled to Syria, Turkey and Lebanon to join Kurdish militia Popular Protection Units in their fight against ISIS. According to  Pan, he wanted to do something meaningful after he could not find regular work in China and his girlfriend had also broken up with him.

“People should do interesting things. For me, what I can do is pick up a gun and go to war.” Pan told BBC China.
