More than 900 Islamic State Terrorists Ready to Strike Inside U.S., Top Gazan Jihadist Claims
There are many more than 900 Islamic State jihadists living in the United States who are prepared to strike if the opportunity arises and instructions are given, a top Islamic State-tied jihadist in the Gaza Strip claimed in an interview on Sunday.
Abu al-Ayna al-Ansari, a Salafist movement senior official in the Gaza Strip, was asked to comment on the number of IS cell members living in the U.S. He was asked to reply to astatement from FBI Director James Comey, who warned last October that the bureau is dealing with an estimated 900 active investigations into IS suspects and other homegrown extremists.
Ansari made the remarks in a pre-recorded interview to air in full tonight on this reporter’s radio talk show, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer ad NewsTalk 990 AM in Philadelphia.
