ISIS members 'entered US and other countries without arousing suspicion with forged passports'. (INN).
The investigation into November's Paris terror attacks has revealed that eight migrants entered Europe with the same forged passport as one of the terrorists.
At the same time, a new report released in the US has brought to light that Islamic State is running a thriving trade in counterfeit passports in Syria and that some of its members are now in the States.
According to the HSI report, IS has a special printing machine in Deir al Zor, one of its Syrian strongholds, and is using it to produce fake passports.
The report warned that, based on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's intelligence sources, ISIS has access to passport printing machines and blank passport books, raising the possibility the documents could be faked, according to the source.
The source noted that, beyond the report, there's concern that this capability coupled with ISIS access to government buildings in Syria that contain valid biographical data and fingerprint info on Syrian citizens give rise to the threat of identity theft. "(Islamic State) members have already entered the US and are able to enter any country without arousing suspicion," the report said. Read the full story here.
