A file on Islamic State’s ‘problem’ foreign fighters shows some are refusing to fight

“The documents in the Islamic State file hinted at signs of rebellion within the ranks of its foreign fighters. A Belgian militant had a medical note saying he had back pain and would not join the battle. A fighter from France claimed he wanted to leave Iraq to carry out a suicide attack at home. Several requested transfers to Syria. Others just simply refused to fight.”
