The only way of dealing with British Islamic State fighters in Syria will be to kill them in almost every case, an international development minister has said.
Rory Stewart said converts to the terror group believed in an “extremely hateful doctrine”, saying fighters can expect to be killed given the threat they pose to British security.
Hundreds of British citizens are known to have travelled to Syria to fight with Islamist groups during the course of the six-year conflict.
Brett McGurk, a top US envoy for the coalition fighting Islamic State (IS), has said his mission is to ensure every foreign IS fighter in Syria dies in Syria.
Absolutely they should be shot on site. They signed up to participate in genocide, rape and torture to please Islam’s cult idol Mohammed.
