Some 300 British ISIS fighters hiding in Turkey pose New Year threat to Europe

European Intelligence services fear 300 British ISIS fighters on the run from Mosul and Raqqa are hiding in Turkey – raising the risk of terror attacks in Europe during the holiday season. They may respond to the latest ISIS video calling for lone wolf attacks on New Year celebrations, particularly on the banks of the River Thames where 250,000 people traditionally gather to watch fireworks heralding the new year.

ISIS-Somalia this week posted its first video. A jihadist called on adherents in English to hunt down and attack drunk nonbelievers in clubs during the festive season. The fighters are based in northern Somalia’s rural Puntland. Their numbers could grow as ISIS fighters flee Syria and Iraq.

Earlier, an African American ISIS fighter, who calls himself Abu Salih al-Amriki, posted a special video message threatening President Donald Trump this week. It was released just days after a successful US-led operation into caves formerly used by ISIS in Syria’s Hamad Desert.

    Excuse me, I thought that Islam were in no way connected to terrorism according to British, UN and EU elites who go out of their way to make the distinction between the very peaceful nature of Islam and its followers and the handful of extremists who in no way have anything in common with Islamic beliefs. All the returning barbarians from ISIS need is a little love, jobs, money, housing, food and understanding according the leftist media.
