Germany on the other hand has also passed a new counter terrorism law. This is one of the toughest laws in Europe. This law has banned IS and gave the authority to the officials to refuse the issue of the National Identity cards for anyone who supports IS (Yeginsu, 2014). In addition to this, the German law has allowed the withdrawal of the passports from the people who may be deemed to be a threat for the nation.
The government of Morocco was least concerned with respect to the flow of the people to Syria and Iraq. But in the year 2015, Morocco amended its law for terrorism and criminalized the joining of the terrorist groups such as IS (Hubbard, 2014). The punishment for joining the terrorist groups was the fifteen years or prison. When the foreign fighters return to Morocco, they are imprisoned.
France has also implemented strict laws against terrorism. French Law doesn’t distinguish any terrorist act and each and every returnee is detained and charged with the conspiracy. In addition to this, the government also established a law, according to which it has right to ban an individual to travel outside the nation if it is suspected that the person may be involved in the terrorist encounters. This law also permits the government of France to withhold the passport from these individuals.
There are two main challenges which are faced by Turkey to control the foreign fighters. Firstly, they are required to stop its own citizens from fighting with IS and other groups. In addition to this, it is important that Turkey implements measures which seal the border with Syria. The government has tried to seal its border with Syria after the Paris attacks in order to prevent the flow of the people to Syria. Similarly, the Government of Jordan has been greatly concerned with the people who are fighting for IS and are used as sleeper cells. The government has decided to close the border with Syria and has refused to accept new refugees in the nation (Kfir, 2014). The government has implemented a law according to which Jordanian foreign fighters can undergo prosecution and arrest if they are found to be involved into terrorism.
The law of Russia has provided the right to imprison the one who has joined any foreign militant group if it is observed to work against the interest of the state. Similarly, the government of Saudi Arabia has implemented a royal decree to impose a prison sentence for all the people between the age groups of 3 to 20 years who are joining in any fight which is outside the nations. The internal security of Saudi has also increased with the help of the massive executions and the arrests.
Though, the condition is not so ideal in Lebanon. This is because of the extreme polarization of the politics of Lebanon. The armed force of Lebanon doesn’t have a powerful army to control and stop the flow of the people to Iraq and Syria. Similarly, the Islamist led government in Tunisia initially look a less focussed approach to the movement of foreign fighters to Syria (Peeters, 2014). But after the mass shooting in one of the tourist resort in Tunisia, the government has imposed several travel restrictions for the people of Tunisia under the age of 35. According to the reports by the government, it has banned around 15000 Tunisians in the nation.
