In the wake of a terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium that killed 31 people and injured another 270, the Associated Press has learned how extensive the network of ISIS fighters has become in Europe.
According to the report, ISIS has trained 400 terrorists to conduct wave after wave of attacks like the ones in Brussels and Paris. These fighters are coming out of training camps in Iraq, Syria, and possibly the former Soviet bloc. And the interconnectivity of this ISIS network can be seen in the links between major terror operations.
According to BBC News, ISIS weapons expert Najim Laachraoui has been linked to the Paris attacks that killed 130 people, and now authorities are working to confirm if he was one of the suicide bombers killed with he detonated his suitcase bomb at the Brussels airport.
Laachraoui, brothers Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui who set off suicide bombs in the airport and subway station, and an unidentified third airport bombing suspect all appear to be connected to Salah Abdeslam, the key Paris attacker who was arrested in Brussels several days ago.
One has to wonder: If there are 400 ISIS fighters embedded in Europe, how many are here in America?
