Daily Mail Reporter Finds It Is Shockingly Simple to Buy Fake Syrian Passports

It’s frighteningly easy for an aspiring ISIS terrorist to obtain the documents needed to gain asylum in Europe, a Daily Mail reporter recently discovered. According to the Mail’s Nick Fagge, it took only four days and $2,000 to obtain a Syrian passport, ID card, and driver’s license at a Turkish border town:

The genuine documents were stolen from Syria when they were blank. The forger added our reporter’s picture and gave him the identity of a Syrian man from Aleppo killed last year. The documents, on sale for around $2,000, would help an asylum claim in Europe.

The forger who sold us the papers said that they are being used by ISIS fanatics to travel undetected across borders into Europe hidden among tens of thousands of genuine refugees fleeing the terror and destruction.

The forger told Fagge:

ISIS fighters are among the people going to Europe in this way. They are going to wait for the right time to become a fighter for ISIS again.

Fagge appeared on Fox News Wednesday to talk about his chilling discovery. “It was surprisingly easy, I must admit,” said Fagge. The article continues:

The revelation comes as Lebanon warned two in every 100 Syrian migrants smuggled into Europe are ISIS-trained fanatics, with most traveling overland through Turkey to Greece.

The extremist group is sending trained jihadists “under cover” to attack targets in the west, Lebanese Education Minister Elias Bousaab told British Prime Minister David Cameron during his visit to the country on Monday.
