350 ISIS members returned to Germany from Syria and Iraq
According to the German Federal Criminal Police Office, about 350 ISIS jihadists have returned to Germany from Syria and Iraq.
The German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) reports that 350 German ISIS jihadists have returned from Iraq and Syria. More than one hundred of them "have evidence that they have actively participated in fighting in Syria or Iraq or have received training for this purpose". The police assume that 260 German jihadists were killed in Syria and Iraq. 80 of them are said to have been classified as "posing a threat".
The Ministry of the Interior of North Rhine-Westphalia stated that in many cases these returnees were "a considerable danger” as they were trained in weapons, were experienced in fighting and had "internalized the jihadist ideology which is ready to use violence".
