Estonia named as an enemy of Islamic State ({{commentsTotal}})


Terror organization the Islamic State (IS), also known as ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh, has listed 60 nations, which it says are in a global coalition against it. Estonia is also on that list.

Besides nations such as the United States, the United Kingdom and France, Russia is also on the list, International Business Times reports.

So are Finland, Sweden and Lithuania, as well as Poland, Denmark and Norway, but there is no room for Latvia.

The group released a video on Wednesday on the topic, calling the 60 countries a “coalition of devils.”

Reportedly two persons from Estonia have traveled to Syria to fight in the war. One, Ivan Sazanakov, is believed to be fighting for the IS or a similar terror organization, although he has recently denied this in a video message, while the other is fighting against IS with Kurdish forces.
