Al Qaeda militants defecting to ISIS pose serious threat, warns US
The United States intelligence agencies raised an alarm as they revealed that several fighters from Al Qaeda affiliates are now defecting to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as the group expands its influence in the two states.
The U.S. counter-terrorism analysts have admitted that the latest development shows the growing international appeal of the group that has an overwhelming military presence in Iraq and Syria, reported The Washington Post.
They also warned that the problem may become more serious as the group accumulates more victories in the region and pose a direct threat to the U.S.
The influx has strengthened the militant group further that has seized control of several Iraqi and Syrian cities in the past.
