Islamic State issues fighters with ID CARDS as jihadis rush to LEAVE terror group

Commanders have given their militants the cards – which contain a three-dimensional chip and an electronic SIM card – to help Islamic State fighters securely move between the Iraqi stronghold of Mosul and their self-declared capital of Raqqa, in Syria.

A civil rights activist based in Mosul, who did not wish to be named, said the cards were part of a campaign to ‘reassure’ fighters the Islamic State’s leadership were still strong and in control of their so-called ‘caliphate’.
