A recent report has revealed that some 300 Chinese nationals have traveled to the Middle East and joined the ranks of ISIL Takfiri militants operating inside Iraq and neighboring Syria.

According to a report published by China’s English-language daily tabloid, the Global Times, on Monday, Chinese citizens are traveling to Syria via Turkey to join ISIL.

"According to information from various sources, including security officers from Iraq's Kurdish region, Syria and Lebanon, around 300 Chinese extremists are fighting alongside ISIL in Iraq and Syria," the report pointed out.

The incident is not particular to China. In early October, Japan’s police arrested a group of Japanese men suspected of planning to go to Syria in order to join ISIL terrorists.

A recent US Intelligence report says 12,000 militants from 81 nationalities, including Americans and Europeans, have joined terrorist groups fighting against the Syrian government.

Meanwhile, the Soufan Group, a New York-based intelligence firm, estimated in June that at least 3,000 militants of European origin have been active in several militancy-riddled regions across the Arab country.

US media reports say more than 100 US citizens have also traveled to Syria to fight against President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The latest figures come as American and European opponents of the Syrian government voice concern as militants appear to be biting the hand that feeds them.

The ISIL militants currently control swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq. They have carried out heinous atrocities in both countries, including mass executions and beheadings of people.
