Khalil was shopping in the Hasakah marketplace in Syria when
Kurdish military police arrested him last March. He was 19 and had
papers that showed he was in high school, but that didn’t matter. The
Kurdish militia, which feeds troops to the U.S.-led war in Syria, was
way short of volunteers. They ordered him into a minibus and drove
through the northeast Syrian city, abducting others along the way.
