Assault on Syria's Idlib risks 'scattering terrorists' abroad: French minister
Agence France Presse
PARIS: French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian warned Tuesday that a Syrian government offensive on the last rebel stronghold of Idlib could scatter thousands of foreign militants abroad, posing a security threat to the West.

"There are in all likelihood dozens of French fighters from both Al-Qaeda and Daesh (ISIS)" in Idlib, Le Drian told France's BFMTV, warning that there were "also many terrorists from other nations who could scatter" in the event of a joint Syrian-Russian offensive, warning of "risks for our security".
