Interpol is worried about the possible presence of 50 Daesh (ISIS) fighters in Europe, who recently arrived in Italy by boat. This is according to a list that was sent to the Italian authorities and other European countries on November 29.
Additionally, according to Interpol, last July 173 Daesh fighters, who were possibly trained to carry out attacks in Europe to avenge their defeats in Syria and Iraq, may have also arrived by boat.
Tunisia is the country from which the most international jihadis tend to originate. “The number of Tunisian foreign fighters is among the highest for those who leave to fight abroad, as in Syria and Iraq,” said Elżbieta Karska, a member of the Commission for Human Rights, in July.
