As ISIS now flee Syria, they plan to bring the war to Europe, where they, disguised as refugees, arrive in numbers.
An ISIS general once pictured decapitating a prisoner is back in Europe with up to 400 of his most trusted soldiers after fleeing the war zone in Syria, reports British Daily Mail.
Ex-NATO soldier Lavdrim Muhaxheri and his men are among thousands who have fled after ISIS suffered devastating losses in war-torn Syria, according to sources in the Italian intelligence services.
Many of the fighters are feared to have disguised themselves as refugees in order to cross borders to get into Europe without being identified, according to information leaked from the spying agency.
Italian newspaper 'L'Espresso', quoting the intelligence services, said that between 300 and 400 members of the Islamic 'caliphate' had come to Kosovo with him.
Prosecutors say Muhaxheri and fellow ISIS fighter Ridvan Haqifi planned attacks on international and state institutions, ultimately with the intent to establish an Islamic state.
Quoting an unnamed security source the paper said: 'Numerous jihadists are returning to Europe and the Balkans, aiming to hit the old continent at its heart. Some of them are being identified by security services, but many others manage to cross the borders without being identified.'
