By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Russia arrested twenty ISIS recruiters yesterday in Moscow. Russian news agency RIA broke the story. The arrests came as the result of a joint operation between the police and the FSB, the Federal Security Service.
Here is the quote. "During a joint operation of the FSB (Federal Security Service) and the police, around twenty people suspected of connections to ISIS (Islamic State) were arrested."
ISIS was recruiting young Moscovites. Many of those arrested for joining the terrorist organization originally came from Uzbekistan which is a former Soviet Republic.
There were many things that were confiscated in the operation. The ISIS recruiters had an entire collection of fake ids, especially fake Turkish driver's licenses. They were clearly forging materials to help the recruits make their way into Turkey and from there into Syria.
Russia knows that they are high on the ISIS target list. And the Russians are responding by increasing security and by doing everything they can to try and locate the ISIS organizers that might be planning attacks.
This is just one example of Russia's private war against ISIS in their country.
