The #Balkans play an important role for #ISIS, which sees them as a buffer and a future battleground. The region already has established networks that can be used to transfer people and to raise support for ISIS.

First #Jihadi #mujahideen warriors in #Bosnia 🇧🇦 began arriving in 1992. Firstly as a humanitarian workers, and later to become the martyrs on Allah´s road in #Bosnia. Their first camp was in village of #Mehurici and their 1st leader was Abu Abdel Aziz aka #Barbaros. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
The main financier of these warriors was Mohammed al-Fatih Hassaneyn from #Sudan 🇸🇩 who with his brother Sukarno founded #TWRA an NGO in #Vienna #Austria 🇦🇹 from where he transferred money and #Jihadi warriors to #Bosnia 🇧🇦.

1/ #German magazine .@DerSPIEGEL reports rising number of #xrw foreign fighters (2,500 now) joining Asow militia in #Ukraine to fight agst #Russia in current print issue.
2/ It is also reported Asow militia actively recruited openly during largest German #xrw concert in #Themar in July 2017. This shows how much underestimated the threat of #xrw foreign fighters compared to #jihadists is. Imagine outcry if #ISIS would openly recruit at a concert.
3/ And the issue is not new. German and other European #neonazis have for example fought in HOS militia in #Bosnian civil war. See this remarkable article featuring interviews with some of them. bit.ly/2yQrL8k
