The government of Germany is aware of more than a thousand jihadists who left Germany in the direction of Syria and Iraq to support terrorist groups. This is reported by Deutche Welle, referring to the government's response to the request of the parliamentary faction of the "Left Party".
The figures indicated mean that the number of people who left the Federal Republic of Germany for combat operations increased again, but significantly less than two years ago.
In addition, it is noted that since 2013, 243 supporters of the Kurdistan Workers' Party and Kurdish self-defense units left Germany to support the international coalition fighting the terrorist group Islamic State.
We recall, the Council of the European Union approved on Monday, May 14, a directive on toughening rules for the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing, providing for increased transparency of data on the owners of trusts and beneficiaries of companies.
President of the United States Donald Trump said that it is necessary to take more stringent measures in the fight against terrorism after the terrorist attack in the south of France.
