Will “professional” ISIS fighters pose a threat?

Al-Arabiya writes about concerns that professional ISIS fighters, and returning fighters pose a threat. According to the report Peter Neumann, Director of the International Center for the Study of Radicalization at King’s College in London, said “No one knows how the returnee threat is going to play out, but it might lead to a professionalization of attacks.”

It goes on to note “Terrorists with a technical know-how and military background, that used to work for ISIS, have now lost the employer that used to coordinate them.”

This was part of an event at a NATO Defense College Foundation conference titled “Targeting the de-materialized Caliphate – Extremism, Radicalization and Illegal Trafficking” held in Rome, Italy, on December 6 with Al Arabiya News Channel media partnership.
