Fighters from ISIS’ ‘terrorist unit’ can no longer escape from Syria to carry out attacks in Europe

ISIS fighters can no longer escape Syria to carry out attacks in Europe such as those that took place in Paris and Brussels, according to a chief in the US-led coalition against the terror group.

“Terrorist combat units” intent on wreaking havoc in Europe can no longer leave Isil’s de facto Syrian capital of Raqqa via Turkey, said Brett McGurk, special presidential envoy for the global coalition against Isil.

    “Maybe” is right. A rather smug, overconfident view of things, one imagines.

    • I have little confidence in Europe’s ability to screen “migrants” and am pretty sure it’s not difficult to escape Syria and Iraq if one knows the right people.

      It would depend how much loot they have retained to bribe their way out.

    But, but, what about all the teams of lone wolves?

    Good news, but how do they know that?

    BS…. this is based on Turkey ‘promissing’ to not give them passage.

    So the rumours that the State Dept have cancelled the direct deposit of all terrorist pay cheques and are repossessing their Toyota technicals are really true ?
