Washington: The number of foreign fighters in Iraq and the UAR has decreased by 10 thousands


“The total number of foreign fighters was 35 thousand. We managed to cut it to 25 thousands. These militants represent the 120 countries, ”said McGerk at a briefing.

According to him, “the only corridor connecting the IG (grouping is banned in the Russian Federation) with the outside world remains a stretch of 98 kilometers on the Syrian-Turkish border.”

“Turkey has done serious work on closing the border, and yet, much remains to be done,” the special representative said.

“It is necessary to close the border in Turkey. But it is also necessary to work with the countries from which the militants are sent (to Iraq and Syria). We must make sure that they cannot get there, and if they succeed in it, so that they cannot return, ”McGerk added.

    Of these, some of them went and "repainted", and some went to Libya! There, the main USAkal is now collecting USCalit under the tail! And nobody canceled Turkish resorts! Well, Europe is generally with open arms for now!
    And phasington, as usual, turns it over into his pEREmogu!

        Elementary! These runaway barmalei are already hooked on social benefits in Europe.

      Simply mattresses transferred 10000 people from the category of terrorists to the category of "moderate opposition". Where the United States is, there is lies, blood and betrayal. yes

      Any such war is mostly money. No money, no war. The radical cell cannot be repainted, because the arrival of a legitimate government, the power of which has money and government communications, immediately or almost immediately organizes the investigation, trial and punishment. Whether repainted or not, there is no difference for the loop, they also pulled up the business. Libya, this is also another universe, in order to get over there, it is not enough to scream as undermined by vowel sounds, you need to know who will send you an invitation. Since Libya, there are thousands of different groupings for several hundred interests, going exactly along the African equator. Therefore, the most mobile "part" of this, and try to separate the part from the whole here, will dump it into Europe. Welcom.

      As for the United States, I never tire of explaining the complete failure of this state in the Middle East. Today everything there is ruled by Arab monarchies, coupled with radical movements, where the United States is not a sign of the process, but only an instrument of action. The very behavior of the Americans resembles the work of a firefighter who extinguishes grass around a burning house with a fly swatter. And dodges flying coals. The announced "truce" will promptly show this role in the whole world, when they are dragged into the conflict in full for the Faberge, if we assume that Mrs. Clinton has these same Faberge ...

      Turkey I have done serious work on closing the border, and nevertheless, much remains to be done, ”said the Special Representative.

      “It is necessary to close the border in Turkey. But it is also necessary to work with the countries from where the militants are sent (to Iraq and Syria). Мы they must make sure that they cannot get in there, and if they succeed, that they cannot return, ”added McGurk.
      Instead of the highlighted words, insert Russia, and you can agree with the above.

    Nonsense! One of the most powerful NATO armies cannot plug 100 km of the border! According to the Americans, a month ago only Syrians fought there against Assad, tricked into the IS! And finally - where are the exact numbers for foreign fighters? From the personnel service of the IG or the Turkish border control? wassat

      There are not one hundred km of the border, there are only a few checkpoints. In the mountains, even with forty kg of cargo per hump, militants cannot make loops of 50 km. There will be no efficiency. They fail to deliver b \ n at the right time. Only transport, trucks.

    Mastaki attribute other people's successes to themselves. They lie constantly and believe in themselves. What kind of country is this?

    In terms of language, borders do not overlap. Something I did not see materials that reflected real cases, some proclamations.

    So that they don’t have to eat at all there are only two options - the first one is to take the igil out to the United States, in full force. So to speak, closer to the owners. And the second option is their total destruction.

      It’s just to pass the handouts out.

    Is this such blatant shamelessness? They (the states) have reduced the number of foreign fighters in ISIS from 35 thousand to 25 thousand. But not a word about the Yugoslav diplomats who died from the American "reduction". If you reduced the number of militants by 10 thousand in a year, then in four years their number would have decreased to "-" (minus) 5 thousand. Heroes !!!

    "The declared" truce "will quickly show this role in the whole world, when they (314ndos) for the Faberge are dragged into the conflict in full."
    Apparently, this is the purpose of this truce. And also a signal to all those who hesitate: "we are for peace!" Those. carrot and stick policy in action. I think we have a winning position.

    I've been thinking all the time - if the article carries useful, new, but negative information, then what should be put a minus?
    So soon they will write, though thought up, but good.
    Or am I wrong?
