UNITED NATIONS (AP) — A new United Nations
report says the world faces a challenge of foreign fighters in terror groups on
an "unprecedented scale," with about 15,000 in Syria and Iraq alone.


The report by a panel of experts monitoring
al-Qaida and the Taliban, obtained Friday by The Associated Press, has been submitted
to the U.N. Security Council.


"Numbers since 2010 are now many times
the size of the cumulative numbers of foreign terrorist fighters between 1990
and 2010 - and are growing," the report says. The panel was set up to
support the council's al-Qaida sanctions committee.


The panel says fighters from more than 80
countries working with al-Qaida associates in Syria and Iraq "form the
core of a new diaspora that may seed the threat for years to come," and
that domestic terrorism could rise as fighters return to their home countries.


The diversity of countries means wider
sharing of skills and training on the ground in Syria and Iraq, the report
warns.


"There are instances of foreign
terrorist fighters from France, the Russian Federation and the United Kingdom
of Great Britain and Northern Ireland operating together," it says.



The report, dated Wednesday, also says the
increasingly sophisticated use of social media is giving the Islamic State
group a "cosmopolitan" appearance.


But the report says it isn't clear whether
the group will rise through divisions in the wider al-Qaida network to claim
dominance of the movement.


The Islamic State group has alarmed the
international community with its recent, sweeping gains in Syria and
northwestern Iraq and with a series of videos of beheadings of foreigners.


The U.S. has been especially concerned,
sponsoring a Security Council resolution in September to address the growing
threat of foreign fighters in terror groups.


The resolution requires nations to bar their
citizens from traveling abroad to join terrorism organizations. The U.S. and
many European nations already have laws that allow them to prosecute citizens
who travel to join extremist groups or even try to do so.


But the Obama administration has acknowledged
that the U.N. resolution has no enforcement mechanism to make sure other
countries do the same, and that the international community has no single
definition of what constitutes a terrorist group.


"It is up to member states to deal with
those issues at the border, and also to deal with the broader issues that come
with it," a spokesman for the U.N. secretary-general, Stephane Dujarric,
told reporters Friday. He did not comment further because the report was not
yet public.


COMMENT:

Now, See The best friend's prepared foreign policy has
led to the confrontation of the populations of all friendly countries against
West, EU and some rich Muslim countries . These very people those who all never
had any animosity with West,EU, and the mentiond Muslim countries. But now why
have these citizens gone against their own and the friendly countries Joining
Terroist groups?

it is because Israel's Zionist  terrorist called Best Friends and ally of
Middle East their inhumane activities and being protected by the WEST Zionist Congressional
Lawmakers with open public declaration. and the continuous committal of
genocide killing the innocent public without even allowing the genocide criminals
to be tried in the court of law!

So far some Rich Muslim country, West and EU countries
combined together protected Israel from being prosecuted for the most heinous
crime committal instead of protecting the innocent victims they were
  continuously protectiong the criminals not only that they are
‘Protecting the World’s
most notorious reputed terrorist state ISRAEL’
, even now.  

The Zionist congressional Lawmakers even threatened
the UN chief and all other concerned top officials that if they do not refrain from
taking action against PM of Israel Netanyahu and Israel for the committal of
genocide then they should be prepared to face the worst dire situation meaning their life.
