More Islamic State nuts in UK than Brits fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria
[EN.ABNA24] Senior MI5 spies fear hardened fighters have returned to the UK intent on recruiting more fanatics to carry out attacks on our shores.
Intelligence chiefs believe hundreds of Brits have returned to the UK and are now living in areas with the highest concentrations of Moslems.
A source reported that up to 300 people who have returned from Syria after fighting for Isis are believed to be living in the London borough of Tower Hamlets, using innocent Moslems as cover.
He added that hundreds more are living in Birmingham, Leicester and Luton.
The source added: "The best place to hide a tree is in a forest - and this is what those who have fought for Isis are doing. They have basically relocated their HQ from Syria to the UK. The fear is they will begin recruiting and will wage terror on British soil.
"Those returning include both men and women, mainly under the age of 25, who are skilled in guerrilla warfare and bomb-making. The threat is very real."
Tower Hamlets has more than 40 mosques and Moslems outnumber Christians in the London borough.
So-called Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling
Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not
-style flags have flown in parts of the borough which was also home to three British schoolgirls who left the UK to join Isis in February 2015.
