Westerners who left their countries to fight for the Islamic State (ISIS) are now begging for help to get home as the terror group racks up losses in Syria and Iraq.

The Telegraph reports that some 150 foreign jihadists from six countries have contacted their missions in Turkey over the past few months.

Diplomats tell the newspaper ISIS has forfeited "vast swathes of territory" in Syria and Iraq — a signal to many foreigners who've joined up that it's time to bail.

But leaving ISIS is easier said than done because the terror group keeps a watchful eye on its ranks and on the border.

And if those attempting to defect are able to make it into Turkey, The Telegraph says, "they face rigorous interrogation from local officials and ones from their home country to determine whether they pose a threat."
