ISIS sends out ‘hit list’ targeting Belgian soldiers

A senior ISIS figure, 29-year-old French citizen Rachid Kassim, has sent the pictures and personal details of Belgian soldiers to about 300 contacts throughout Europe. The message titled "instructions for our Muslim brothers in Belgium" was sent to Kassim's terror network using the Telegram messaging platform, but French intelligence succeeded in breaking the encryption of some of the messages. Sources involved in the investigation said ISIS got the pictures and personal details of the officers and enlisted men from social networks. The chief of staff of Belgium's military, Marc Compernol, confirmed the information that was published in the Belgian media on Wednesday and said Belgian intelligence services are monitoring the developments.
