The IB also has reason to believe that some of the inhabitants of Latvia who went to Syria were killed. The presence on the territory controlled by terrorists does not necessarily mean participation in hostilities, recognizes the IB. But given the fact that Syria depart radically minded individuals, terrorist activity is one of the goals of their journey.

According to PB, on the territory controlled by terrorists in Syria and Iraq in 2015 from Latvia went women and men of different nationalities — known representatives of the Muslim community, and those who only begin to study Islam, but the majority of people who converted to Islam from another faith.

Some of them went to Syria or Iraq with his family, and some associates.
