According to the Daily Express, a Syrian operative claims more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen had been smuggled into western nations – hidden amongst innocent refugees crossing the sparsely-guarded 565-mile Turkish border to reach the richer European nations.
The ISIS smuggler, who is in his thirties and is described as having a trimmed jet-black beard, revealed the ongoing clandestine operation is a complete success.
“Just wait,” he warned with a smile.
The Islamic State operative spoke exclusively to BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity and is believed to be the first to confirm plans to infiltrate western countries.
The operative said the undercover infiltration was the beginning of a larger plot to carry out revenge attacks in the West in retaliation for the US-led coalition airstrikes.
He said, “If someone attacks me then for sure I will attack them back.”
The massive surge of Syrian refugees into Europe over the sparsely secured Turkish border has become a major world concern.
Germany’s resources have been exhausted, as they struggle to take in approximately 800,000 refugees from war-torn Syria with open arms.
Just this past weekend, Germans applauded refugees who arrived in the country after making the journey through Hungary and Austria.
The operative, who said Islamic State extremists are taking full advantage of developed nations’ generosity towards refugees to infiltrate Europe, explained how lethal ISIS gunmen use local smugglers to blend in and travel amongst a huge tide of illegal migrants flooding Europe.
10,000 of those refugees are headed to the United States, most of whom are military-age males.
Two Turkish refugee-smugglers backed up the claims made by the Syrian operative. One admitted to aiding 10 ISIS fighters to infiltrate Europe.
“I’m sending some fighters who want to go and visit their families,” he said. “Others just go to Europe to be ready,” he added, referring to the terrorists coming to Europe and waiting for their orders to commit jihad.
The Syrian operative said he had been given special permission to speak to the press by his superior, which he referred to as an “emir.” “There are some things I’m allowed to tell you and some things I’m not,” he said, warning that ISIS has very ambitious plans.
Earlier this year, a spokesperson for Islamic State called on Muslims in the West to carry out terror attacks.
The jihadists told Western followers if they had the opportunity to “shed a drop of blood” in Western countries, then they should do so.
