ISIS members can use passports to deliver fighters: source

There are 2,000-3,000 Arab and foreign passports in the hands of ISIS members, a security source said Monday, adding that these passports pose a danger, according to the intelligence, especially if used by ISIS to deliver fighters to some countries, including the US.

US intelligence teams in Syria have been searching for weeks for the passports of leaders and gunmen of ISIS, who carry Arab and foreign passports, the source said.

The Swiss justice minister earlier in March confirmed that the country was looking at revoking the passport of a Swiss citizen who fought for ISIS.

Moreover, Eleonore Petermann, spokeswoman for the German interior ministry, said ministers had agreed that, in the future, anyone with dual nationality “who has taken part in combat operations for a terrorist militia will forfeit their German citizenship.”
