Letting Islamic State jihadis return to the UK is like ‘inviting the wolf to dinner’, warns Briton who fought against the terror group

Letting Islamic State jihadis return to the UK is like ‘inviting the wolf to dinner’, a Briton fighting against the murderous group has warned.

Having battled the extremists for the past three years alongside Syrian Democratic Forces, Macer Gifford said there was a ‘real risk’ those returning could carry out terror attacks.

Earlier this month Max Hill QC spoke of ‘losing a generation’ by automatically using the courts to punish those who have travelled to the war zone, with the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation calling for a focus on ‘reintegration’.
