Two in every 100 Syrian migrants are likely to be Islamic State fighters, a Lebanese minister has warned David Cameron. Britain has agreed to take 20,000 Syrian refugees over the next few years. If the minister’s warning is correct, as many as 400 of them could be trained terrorists.
During his meeting with the Prime Minister, who recently conducted a brief visit to the region, Education Minister Elias Bousaab warned that ISIS are sending terrorists “under cover” to attack Western targets, the Daily Mail has reported.
He explained that jihadists choose targets to radicalise, including children, in refugee camps and schools before trafficking them into Europe via Turkey and Greece.
