British who agitate for Islamic State abroad should be gotten hold of and killed to make sure they don’t return to the United Kingdom, the defense secretary, Gavin Williamson, has stated.
Senior cabinet minister, Williamson mentioned that there was purposeful target of British jihadis by the armed forces hunting down Isis as the group flee in Syria and Iraq,in the concrete observation
The current secretary of defense told the Daily Mail: “A dead terrorist can not harm Britain.”
“I don’t think that any terrorist, regardless of the country they come from, should ever be granted entry into this country,” he said. “We should do all we can to overcome and eliminate that threat.”
Williamson said jihadi groups in Libya, Iraq and Syria were in the verge to plotting attacks in the UK. “Our role in eliminating them will continue this year, will continue next year – it’s something we shouldn’t stop pursuing,” he said.
His comment put him in different stance with the head of the terrorism inspector who lately said the UK could try to restore young and naive jihadis who desire to return to the UK.
Max Hill, the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, advised of the risk of “letting go a generation” of men and women by making use of the courts to punish them.
Not less than 800 UK citizens are believed to have gone to fight for Isis in Iraq and Syria, with inclusion of teenagers and women.
“We need to ensure that as [they] split and as they spread across Iraq, Syria and other areas, we don’t stop to hunt them down,” he said. “Ensure there is no refuge for them, that they can not leave for other countries preaching their hate, preaching their cult of death.”
The foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, is about to give a speech on Thursday on British attempt to combat terrorism, including opposing suggestions from the EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier that the vote to evacuate the bloc had meant Britain had concluded to refuse co-operation.
“Every day across the world I say to you, British serving men and women put their lives in danger to roll up terrorist networks, to uncover what they do, to frustrate them and bring them to justice,” he will say.
“They’re making good on what the prime minister has correctly tagged the unconditional commitment of the British people to the security of our European allies, not just within the continent but without.”
