Some 2,500 Europeans Fight in Ranks of ISIS

According to the opinion written by London’s International Institute for Strategic Studies, from 2,000 to 2,500 Europeans had joined the opposition fighters and terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq.

Gilles De Kerchove, EU Counter-terrorism Coordinator, says that hundreds of people have been recruited from France, Belgium and Italy. They have already fought alongside with terrorists in Syria and Iraq. Gilles De Kerchove supposes that their return home poses serious security threat of European countries, whose inhabitants are quite concerned about the terrorist’s attacks on the EU territory.

Europol previously reported that the terrorist organization Islamic State was losing positions in the Middle East therefore it was going to organize a new wave of attacks in the EU.
