British IS fighters should be killed

British IS fighters should be killed”

"They believe in an extremely hateful doctrine which involves killing themselves, killing others and trying to use violence and brutality to create an eighth-century or seventh-century state", he said.

According to British Minister of state Rory Stewart, all Britons who have joined "Islamic State" (IS) in Syria would have to be killed.

"Anyone who does travel to Syria, for whatever reason, is putting themselves in considerable danger - particularly if they are fighting for our enemies", he said via email.

Downing Street said Mr Stewart's comments were "consistent" with the Government's "determination to fight and defeat Daesh terrorists regardless of their nationality".

Rory Stewart, minister for worldwide development, said Isis converts should expect to be killed because of the "serious danger" they pose to the UK's security.

Stewart described defectors as a serious threat to British society, so re would be "unfortunately no or option than to kill m in nearly every case".

Asked about the comments on BBC Radio 5 Live's Pienaar's Politics, Stewart, a former diplomat, said they were "very hard moral issues".

He said those fighting for Isis, which is facing an existential threat after being wiped out in Raqqa, meant they no longer had allegiance to Britain.

Brett McGurk, a top USA envoy for the global coalition fighting Isis, said his mission is to ensure "every foreign fighter in Syria dies in Syria".

His remarks come just days after the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, Max Hill QC, said "brainwashed" young people who travelled to Syria "with a sense of naivety" should be spared prosecution and allowed to return.

Max Hill QC said the United Kingdom should instead look at reintegrating those who fought in Syria and Iraq for the Islamic militants.

Stewart's comments come just days after the U.K.'s independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, Max Hill, urged United Kingdom authorities to look at ways in which British converts to ISIS could be reintegrated back into society.

Jones was killed close to the border between Syria and Iraq by a US Air Force strike in June.

Around 850 Brits have fled the country to fight for Islamic State in Syria and Iraq over the past six years, one of whom was Sally Jones (pictured), also known as the White Widow.

Jones, one of the world's most wanted extremists, fled the United Kingdom with her husband and youngest son, JoJo, in 2013.
