TRINIDAD EXPRESS – THE Turkish newspaper Hürriyet is reporting that four nationals of Trinidad and Tobago fighting for ISIS were among 961 fighters captured by the Turkish security forces in 2015. The following is the report –

Some 961 foreign members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) from 57 countries were caught by Turkish security forces in 2015, intelligence sources have told daily Hürriyet.

The question of foreign fighters and the security of Turkey’s border with Syria has been raised again following the ISIL suicide attack in Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet Square, which killed 10 German tourists.

Intelligence sources speaking on condition of anonymity said strict measures had been taken at the border to prevent and catch foreign fighters trying to enter Turkey from Syria or vice versa, but admitted it was almost impossible to totally prevent illegal crossing.

The same sources said 961 ISIL members had been caught in Turkey by security forces in 2015, without naming the 57 countries from which the foreign fighters had come as they did not want the countries’ representation offices in Turkey to react negatively, as was previously the case.
