BALKAN – THE NEXT STAGE OF ISIS ?

>balkans-ISISPope Francis arrives in Bosnia, urges ethnic and religious harmony, on 06/06/2015, dozen jihadists claiming to be from Albania, Bosnia and Kosovo Abu Muqatil Al-Kosovo (The fighter from Kosovo), said ‘disbelievers’ in the Balkans would face ‘horrible days’.

Islamists claiming to be members of the Islamic State (I.S.I.S) group called for jihad in the Balkans in a 21 minutes video widely reported Friday 06/05/2015 by local media, on the eve of a visit by Pope Francis to Sarajevo (see also – ISIS-Threat All Over ).

The video does not make any reference to the pope’s visit and it was not possible to determine when and where it was recorded.

Bosnian Muslims, who make up 40 percent of the country’s 3.8 million inhabitants, are mostly moderate.

But the strict interpretation of Islam by the foreign fighters who fought in Bosnia during the 1992-1995 war has been adopted by some locals 20 years later.

Some 200 Bosnians are believed to have joined groups fighting in Iraq and Syria, with around 50 believed to have already returned to Bosnia, the intelligence services estimate.
