Infographic

For a long time we have heard accusations of the number of foreign fighters fighting inside Syria. I took the time to compile an info-graphic showing the country of origin of foreign fighters inside Syria. I based this on reports from major news outlets such as NYTimes, Bloomberg, BBC and Reuters. As well as from a major report from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and Flashpoint titled ‘Convoy of Martyrs in the Levant’ – https://flashpoint-intel.com/upload/syria_martyrs/2013-06-02_Convoy_of_Martyrs_Report.pdf. I also referred to Wikipedia pages and the Daily Beast.
