About 26,000 ISIS-linked terrorists are now trying to move from Syria and Iraq to Europe and around the world, according to the US-led coalition.
“There is a database of 26,000 terrorist fighters which are there to identity and action if they are identified trying to move outside of Iraq and Syria or throughout the world,” spokesman for the US-led coalition against ISIS Colonel Ryan Dillon said.
Dillon added that ISIS is no longer a “military threat” but this “does not mark the end the end of Daesh [ISIS]”.
“We are looking at the enemy and seeing how he adapts and we will provide our partners the support that they need to deliver the lasting defeat to Daesh [ISIS] in Iraq and Syria,” Colonel Dillon said adding that the threat of ISIS attacks around the world is growing.
