According to a new bombshell report, following the fall of ISIS’ de facto capital of Raqqa, thousands of ISIS fighters have fled to Europe.
One french fighter admits the group is set to carry out a new mission, including multiple new attacks.
[The fighter] was part of an almost exclusively French group within IS, and before he left some of his fellow fighters were given a new mission.
There are some French brothers from our group who left for France to carry out attacks in what would be called a ‘day of reckoning.’
The Daily Caller reports hundreds of other french fighters returned to Europe:
The French terrorists join hundreds of other foreign fighters who have returned home from the battlefield in Iraq and Syria. These include nearly half of departed fighters from the U.K., nearly 300 back to France, more than 100 in Belgium, and dozens others across Western Europe, a recent Soufan Center analysis revealed.
The U.S. Department of State similarly estimated in late July that nearly 30 percent of European foreign fighters for ISIS have returned to the continent. Experts fear that some of the returning foreign fighters will pursue domestic terror plots in their home countries, or even use their passports to travel elsewhere in the West.
Business Insider reports that thousands of other fighters fled the region:
The truckers met around 4,000 ISIS fighters and their families armed to the teeth and strapped with explosives. The terrorist group boarded the convoy of trucks, along with their own vehicles, and reportedly beat and threatened the drivers for the duration of the trip. The ISIS fighters brought so many weapons and so much ammunition, the weight broke a trucker’s axel, according to the BBC.
