The Syrian army is conducting an operation to liberate the city of Mayadin from the “Islamic state”. This settlement is called one of the last bastions of militants. And here are almost all the jihadists from Bosnia and Herzegovina and other parts of the former Yugoslavia, writes the Nezavisimaya Gazeta portal from Banja Luka (Republika Srpska).
Earlier, the Bosnian media reported that in the battles of Deir ez-Zor, their citizen, a terrorist named Amer Djinic, was killed. He was in Syria since 2013.
According to Balkan analysts, Bosnia and Herzegovina in Europe ranks first in the number of radicals that have left to the Middle East in relation to the population. Radical Islamism has been growing its influence here since the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, when volunteers and mercenaries who professed radical Islamic movements came to fight against the Serbs.
Earlier, Czech President Miloš Zeman openly expressed his fears that Bosnia could become a “terrorist base” in Europe after the defeats of Islamists in Syria.
