From ‘blind eye’ to crackdown: UK confused over Brits fighting in Syria?

Standard

Britain is about to unleash plans for a tougher crackdown on Britons allegedly fighting in Syria. Human rights activists believe the UK could have inspired some of its citizens to join extremists by its own support for the anti-Assad rebels.The Queen’s speech on Wednesday will, according to a leak, outline plans for a tough crackdown on terrorism. An estimated 400 UK citizens are currently fighting in Syria, some of them reportedly with an Al-Qaeda affiliate, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). “Our message is clear – the UK advises against all travel to Syria. Anyone who does travel, for whatever reason, is putting themselves in considerable danger,” an anonymous government source told the Daily Mail. This tougher approach is to be announced as Europe grows ever more concerned with what to do with its citizens, returning from battlefields in Syria. Especially so, following the detention on Sunday of a French suspect who is allegedly responsible for last week‘s Brussels Jewish Museum shooting, and before that reportedly fought in Syria.
