Berlin says 100 Germans killed fighting alongside ISIL

About 100 Germans have died fighting within the ranks of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) since 2012, according to the country’s interior minister.

In comments published Sunday, Thomas de Maziere said that about 700 had travelled to Syria and Iraq to fight alongside ISIL in the last three years.

About a third of those who travelled to the region to fight have since returned, de Maziere told Germany’s Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

De Maziere said Germany has blocked travel to the region in an effort to control the problem.

    l hope the German Government is not paying them welfare anymore…

    Hundreds of dead krauts? almost like old times……

      They are hardly Blue eyed Teutonic German men…you known, the kind you are going to need in the upcoming fight. Too bad we killed so many of their fore fathers, huh?

    “..Germany has blocked travel to the region in an effort to control the problem.”

    What problem? Let them go and don’t let them come back. Socialism makes people look for complicated and unworkable solutions for things that are simple to fix.

      We need an engineered solution: a One-Way or Non Return valve.
      No restrictions on leaving but if you leave your passport is revoked and you are not allowed to return. Family members included.

        Way overdue.

  • That works out to 7,200 virgins.

      that’s ‘vegans’

      • I’m a vegan. I prefer even meat eating virgins.

        • MRHapla

          so would that be a compromise, an allowance, a rationalization or a workaround?

    • AlanUK

      That’s a minimum figure. 72 virgins is the lowest reward.

  • Let’s find the returns! Add ’em to the list.

    Germans always die when they fight for lost causes, when will they ever learn?
