According to Cazeneuve, a special concern raises the substantial increase in the number of French Islamists in Syria in recent months. “The increase made 75% for 6 months,” the interior minister noted, adding that to date, the number of Frenchmen fighting for Syrian militants “is comparable to the amount of people from other European countries”. The minister also said that, according to available data, some 120 young men wishing to join the militants are currently on their way from France to Syria. About 100 people, who already have gone through the Syrian war, have returned to France, and another 25 Frenchmen died in battles, according to Cazeneuve.
The minister has said that in these days, a special hotline has been launched in France, where everyone can get a consultation and provide information about the possible dispatch to Syria of an acquainted or a relative. “The task is to mobilize all means to prevent them from departing,” the minister explained.
