A terrifying list of 173 ISIS assassins prepared to carry out attacks in Europe has been found in Iraq.
The list was found in a terrorist hideout in the shattered ruins of Mosul and includes names, photos and the country of origin of scores of fanatics.
More than 130 of the fighters are from Iraq, but it also includes Tunisians, Moroccans and Jordanians as well as jihadists from Tajikistan and Saudi Arabia, according to German newspaper Die Welt.
Six of the terrorists are Europeans – from Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany.
The lone German on the list is Sami J., 27, from Solingen(pictured), formerly a leading member of the Islamist group Fillatu Ibrahim.
His current battle name is ‘Abu Assid al-Almani’ – the German. He is said to have left his homeland in 2012, travelled to Egypt, then Libya and later via Turkey to Syria to join ISIS.
His wife and child followed him but it is not clear whether he is still alive. In mid-July ISIS broadcast a report about his death via its propaganda service in Raqqa but without mentioning how he died.
This is considered unusual and intelligence agencies believe may be false in order for him to be secreted back into Europe for a suicide mission.
Die Welt says it has seen the list, adding: ‘Each photo on the list is marked with a name and a date of birth, with a often martial-sounding battlename and information about the country of origin.
