Bringing jihad home? 300 British ISIS fighters ‘hiding out in Turkey’

British jihadists are on the run, having been driven out of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) strongholds in Syria. Up to 300 of them are hiding out in Turkey, according to a Syrian-Kurdish intelligence officer.

Fighters were sent scrambling into the desert when the then IS-held cities of Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in northern Iraq were retaken this year. At least 300 among them are believed to be British – leading to fears among western intelligence agencies that many are making the journey back to Europe to launch terrorist attacks at home.

      Unleashing them is a bargaining chip.

    Send out teams from the Special Reconnaissance Regiment to cap them before they set foot on British soil. Problem solved.
