UN Fears More Attacks as Anti-Terrorist Fight in Syria and Iraq Advances

GENEVA – The executive director of the UN Security Council anti-terrorist committee warned on Tuesday of a potential increase in attacks as the war on terror advances.

“As the fight against terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq intensifies, leaders of these formations will tell their brethren in other places: don’t come here, stay in your homes and perpetrate attacks there,” said Jean-Paul Laborde in a press conference.

The expert placed the attacks in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Bangladesh and Turkey within this new context and warned that the incidents will repeat themselves.

Laborde estimated that there are 30,000 foreign fighters currently present in Iraq and Syria, joining the ranks of the myriad extremist groups, including, but not limited to, the Islamic State.

Regarding those that have returned, Laborde said we must remain alert, not only to stop the more dangerous ones, but also to differentiate those who, though radicalized, are not a danger to society.

“We need to filter between those who are a threat and those who are not, as we know devastating effects a prison sentence can have,” he said.

He also insisted on the importance of advancing the exchange of information between intelligence services to accelerate the detection of potentially dangerous individuals.

He advocated for deepening the ties between the international community and large technological corporations to “win the information and inter-connection battle.”

“We must share all information as fast as possible in order to move forward in the fight against terrorism,” he said.
