Over 25,000 militants from more 100 nations have joined al-Qaeda and ISIL Takfiri militants in Iraq and Syria and other countries, a UN report says.

The analysis, which was carried out by a panel of experts monitoring UN sanctions against al-Qaeda, shows that the number of foreign terrorists spiked by 71 percent between mid-2014 and March 2015, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

The report added that the flow of foreign militants "is higher than it has ever been historically."

According to the report, which was presented to the UN Security Council, the total number of foreign terrorists has "risen sharply from a few thousand... a decade ago to more than 25,000 today."

Syria and Iraq were the destination for over 20,000 of the militants, where they went to join ISIL and the al-Nusra front, the report added.

It went on to say that the foreign militants are currently training in "a veritable 'international finishing school' for extremists."

It also pointed out that an estimated 6,500 foreign militants are active in Afghanistan and hundreds more in Yemen, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia and other countries.

The militants and their networks "pose an immediate and long-term threat" and "an urgent global security problem" which needs to be tackled on many fronts, said the report.
The Takfiri extremists currently control parts of Syria and Iraq. They have carried out atrocious crimes in the two countries, including mass executions and the beheading of people.

The al-Nusra Front is a terrorist Al-Qaeda-linked group which is responsible for heinous acts of terror against innocent civilians in Syria.
