Lanza Interpol lista de suicidas del EI
Londres, Inglaterra (22 julio 2017).- 

El diario británico The Guardian publicó una lista en poder de la Organización Internacional de Policía Criminal (Interpol) elaborada a partir de información obtenida por los servicios secretos de EU durante los asaltos a territorios controlados por el EI en Siria e Irak.
Según la información, existe preocupación por que seguidores de EI en el continente lleven a cabo atentados suicidas a medida que se produce el colapso del autoproclamado "califato".
El medio señala que tuvo acceso a esta lista, distribuida por países europeos, pero puntualizó que no hay pruebas de que los yihadistas mencionados hayan entrado a Europa, aunque la Interpol busca saber si los gobierno europeos cuentan con información de estos individuos.
La lista define al grupo de combatientes como individuos que pudieron haber sido entrenados para construir y colocar aparatos explosivos de fabricación casera a fin de provocar muertes o heridas.

La información indicó que los terroristas podrían hacer viajes internacionales y participar en actividades extremistas.
El material, recogido por los servicios secretos de EU, fue entregado al FBI, que transmitió la lista a la Interpol para su intercambio global.
La lista de sospechosos cuenta con la fecha en la que el Estado Islámico los reclutó y sus últimas posibles direcciones y fotografías. Además por cada combatiente se creó una identificación para asegurar que cada país miembro de la red Interpol pueda integrar los datos a sus bases locales.
Los servicios de inteligencia estadounidense confían en la fiabilidad de sus fuentes utilizadas para compilar su lista, pero las fuerzas antiterroristas occidentales han dicho que enfrentan una difícil lucha para identificar a los posibles sospechosos, quienes tienen acceso a una serie de documentos falsos, identidades dobles y pasaportes falsos.
La Interpol hizo hincapié en la transmisión de la lista como parte de un documento de información entre los organismos nacionales de lucha contra la delincuencia.
"La Interpol envía regularmente alertas y actualizaciones a sus oficinas centrales sobre terroristas y criminales buscados a través de su red global de comunicaciones policiales", informó uno de sus portavoces.
"Es el país miembro el que proporciona la información y el que decide a qué otros países quiere compartir".
El funcionario afirmó que el propósito de enviar este tipo de alertas y actualizaciones es para asegurar que la información policial vital esté disponible cuando se necesite.
Además, tiene también como objetivo identificar a los miembros extremistas que puedan hacer nacido y crecido en países europeos.
En 2015, la ONU consideró que había 20 mil combatientes extranjeros en Irak y Siria, de los cuales 4 mil eran de Europa, pero no había una lista específica de esos combatientes, incluidos los nacidos en Medio Oriente. 
Interpol circulates list of 173 suspected members of Isis suicide brigade
Exclusive: Agency believes the fighters could have been trained to bomb Europe as revenge for military defeats in Middle East

Interpol has circulated a list of 173 Islamic State fighters it believes could have been trained to mount suicide attacks in Europe in revenge for the group’s military defeats in the Middle East.
The global crime fighting agency’s list was drawn up by US intelligence from information captured during the assault on Isis territories in Syria and Iraq.

European counter-terror networks are concerned that as the Isis “caliphate” collapses, there is an increasing risk of determined suicide bombers seeking to come to Europe, probably operating alone.
There is no evidence that any of the people on the list, whose names the Guardian has obtained, have yet entered Europe, but the Interpol circulation, designed to see if EU intelligence sources have any details on the individuals, underlines the scale of the challenge facing Europe.

The list, sent out by the general secretariat of Interpol on 27 May, defines the group of fighters as individuals that “may have been trained to build and position improvised explosive devices in order to cause serious deaths and injuries. It is believed that they can travel internationally, to participate in terrorist activities.”

The data was originally collected by the US intelligence “through trusted channels”. The material was handed over to the FBI, which transmitted the list to Interpol for global sharing.

A note appended to the Interpol list circulated in Italy explains how the terrorist database was constructed, putting together the pieces of the puzzle from hundreds of elements, mainly gathered when Isis local headquarters were captured.

“The people,” the note says, “have been identified through materials found in the hiding places of Isil, the Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant.” The note adds that “it emerges that those subjects may have manifested willingness to commit a suicidal attack or martyrdom to support Islam”.

The list shows the suspects’ names, the date Isis recruited them, their last likely address including the mosque at which they have been praying while away fighting, their mother’s name and any photographs.

For each of the fighters, an ID was created to ensure that each member country in the Interpol network could integrate the data with local databases.

Interpol has asked its national partners for any information they might have about each name on the list, and any other background personal data they have on their files, such as border crossings, previous criminal offences, biometric data, passport numbers, activity on social media and travel history.

The information will then be included in Interpol’s ASF (automatic search facility) database in order to possibly put the names on a higher level watch list.

US intelligence is apparently confident about the reliability of the sources used to compile the list. But western counter-terrorism forces have said they face an uphill struggle identifying potential suspects, who have access to a mountain of false documents, double identities and fake passports.

Interpol stressed the list’s transmission came as part of its role circulating information between national crime-fighting agencies. “Interpol regularly sends alerts and updates to its national central bureaux (NCB) on wanted terrorists and criminals via our secure global police communications network,” a spokesman said. “It is the member country which provides the information that decides which other countries it can be shared with.

A European counter-terrorism officer said one of the purposes of circulating the list around Europe was to identify those on it who might have been born and raised in European countries.

In 2015 the UN considered there were 20,000 foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria, of whom 4,000 were from Europe, but there has not previously been a specific list of those fighters including those born in the Middle East who have been identified as potential suicide bombers.

The speed with which Isis fighters are likely to attempt to reach Europe will depend on a range of issues including whether the group tries to set up a new base in Syria in the wake of the impending fall of Raqqa, its last major redoubt in north-west Syria. There is a growing suggestion that Isis fighters will shift south from Raqqa to the defensible territory stretching from Deir el-Zourez-Zor to Abu Kamal.
The jihadi group is currently struggling to come to terms with the loss of Mosul in northern Iraq following a battle that produced some of the most brutal fighting since the end of the second world war.

The parallel advance on Raqqa, the group’s other urban stronghold in the region, has been stalled partly due to the severity of the resistance being mounted against the Syrian Democratic Forces made up of an alliance of Kurds, Arabs and US Special forces.

US Army Col Ryan Dillon on Friday estimated there were around 2,000 Isis militants in the city, who he said were using civilians and children as human shields. The distance between SDF forces on the eastern side of the city and on the western fronts is now just under 2km.

The United Nations estimates that about 190,000 residents of Raqqa province have been displaced since April, including about 20,000 since the operation to seize the provincial capital began in early June.

US diplomats this week admitted that the SDF forces, due to their ethnic make-up, will be constrained from going south of Raqqa to pursue Isis as far as Deir Azzour, saying this may be the task of the Syrian forces under Bashar al Assad, or even Iranian-backed Shia militia.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Guardian than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.
