Germany does not know where many of the IS fighters who have traveled to Syria or Northern Iraq are. In more than 160 German supporters of the Islamic State (IS) lacked evidence of their whereabouts, it says in a response of the German Interior Ministry to a question from Secretary General,  Free Democratic Party Linda Teuteberg.

The government explained that most of the IS fighters were probably killed in combat. probably these people also managed to settle or submerge.” However, it is unlikely that the IS supporters can go unnoticed to Germany. “Given the different measures (including wanted listings or entry barriers) that make uncontrolled re-entry much more difficult, it will continue to be assumed in the future that entry without knowledge of the German security authorities should remain the exceptional case,” the government said.

Teuteberg called it “in view of the known very incomplete protection of the external borders of the EU” as worrying that the German Government seems to have taken no further measures to prevent the uncontrolled re-entry of submerged IS fighters. The FDP politician also accused the government, “still have no concept for dealing with former IS fighters from Germany”. “This applies to the Germans detained in the war zone as well as to the more than 200 former IS supporters who are now back in Germany.”
