THREAD Jihad in Bosnia
1) I traveled to the Islamic core of #Bosnia where in 1992-1995 hundreds of FFs joined El Mudžahid unit and fought along with Bosniaks, the first jihadist military presence in Europe. I also investigated the current Salafist scene @ISPI_Terrorism #terrorism
2) The industrial town of #Zenica was the main Muslim HQ in central Bosnia. Hundreds of Arab-Afghan veterans and new jihadists converged here to be later deployed to the frontline. 1995 military parade of the 7th Muslim Brigade linked to El Mudžahid in the presence of Izetbegović
3) Local population is extremely reluctant and annoyed to talk about wartime and follows a code of silence to avoid ethnic tensions. This makes it hard to visit remote villages or ask for details. Bosnian Muslims don’t want to be associated with jihadist #terrorism and war crimes
