President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused unnamed European countries of not providing enough support to relocating captured members of the Islamic State in Syria.

“We have 1,800 ISIS Prisoners taken hostage in our final battles to destroy 100% of the Caliphate in Syria. Decisions are now being made as to what to do with these dangerous prisoners,” Trump tweeted.

“European countries are not helping at all, even though this was very much done for their benefit,” he added. “They are refusing to take back prisoners from their specific countries. Not good!”

Last March, the Trump administration announced that ISIS had lost all of its territory in Syria, but more recently the group took credit for a series of bomb attacks that filled over 250 people in Sri Lanka, and released a video showing ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi vowing “that jihad will continue until doomsday.” 

Trump previously asked European countries, specifically the United Kingdom, France and Germany, “to take back over 800 Isis fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial. The Caliphate is ready to fall. The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them.”
