12 jihadis from The Hague killed in Syria and Iraq Society
March 25, 2015 So far at least 12 people from The Hague have died taking part in jihad in Syria and Iraq, new city council figures show. Mayor Jozias van Aaartsen will not say how they died but did confirm they are ‘mainly’ young men, the Telegraaf reports. So far 40 young men and six women have left The Hague for Syria and Iraq and three children have been stopped from going, the paper says. In the meantime, 11 people have returned. Van Aartsen declined to say why they had come back – because they are injured, out of nostalgia or other motives. Around 20 Hague jihadis are still in the region.
