Militants kill 100 foreigners trying to quit terror group

It was gathered that ISIS in Raqqa has created a military police to arrest any foreign fighter who do not report for duty

Reports say the Islamic state militant group ISIS has executed 100 of its own foreign fighters trying to quit terror group.

The foreigners were caught while trying to flee ISIS headquarters in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the Financial Times newspaper said.

According to an activist opposed to ISIS and the regime of Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, “a 100 execution of foreigners trying to leave the jihadist group’s de facto capital have been verified”.

It was gathered that ISIS in Raqqa has created a military police to arrest any foreign fighter who do not report for duty as dozens of homes have been raided and many foreign jihadists arrested.

Some jihadists have become disillusioned with the realities of fighting in Syria, reports have said.

According to the British press in October, five Britons, three French, two Germans and two Belgians wanted to return home after complaining that they ended up fighting against other rebel groups rather than Assad’s regime.

They were being held prisoner by ISIS.

According to to researchers at the International Centre for the Study of

Radicalisation at King’s College London, between 30 and 50 Britons want to return but fear they face jail time.
