Spanish Man Goes To The Syrian War Running Away From His Wife
The first Spanish man in the Syrian war is not there for religious or political reasons: “My house was a nightmare”.
Our reporter Gary Cockburn has met with the first Spanish man fighting against ISIS without any ideological reason. Hilario Pina is a Galician man who worked as a plumber and lived in Pontevedra 13 months ago. He decided to go to the Syrian war because, according to him, he couldn’t bear is wife anymore.
In tears, he told us that he misses his two kids, whom he left with “that crazy woman”. When our reporter Gary Cockburn asked him if he wanted to go back, he said: “To Syria you can come, but can’t leave”. Pina got engaged in 2008 and had a happy life until things started to get worse.
The 35-year old man says that he never thought he would end up like this, but he has played several games like Counter Strike and Call Of Duty. “I don’t really like war, in fact, I hate killing people I don’t know, but it was the only way out”.
Even though he has some troubles with the language and he has little to no knowledge of guns, in barely 13 months Pina has got many friends and he claims that they are “good people”.
