Adopting a tough stand against the Britons who joined the Islamic State (ISIS) group in Syria and Iraq, the new UK Defence Minister Gavin Williamson has said that they should be eliminated and never be allowed to return to the country.
"We should do everything we can do to destroy and eliminate that threat".
To combat the activities of terrorist in the UK, British Defense Secretary is advocating death for all UK citizens that have joined IS struggle in Syria and Iraq..
But the comments clashed with advise from the terror laws watchdog, who said Britain should aim to "reintegrate" some of the "naïve" jihadis who travel to warzones.
"A dead terrorist can't cause any harm to Britain", he told the Daily Mail - prompting questions about whether the Ministry of Defence had drawn up a "kill list".
In the interview, Mr Williamson said: "I do not believe that any terrorist, whether they come from this country or any other, should ever be allowed back into this country".
This could mean seizing their passports if they try to cross worldwide borders, the Daily Mail said.
Under British and global law, an aspiration to eliminate all known British IS recruits will take a little more consideration than simply launching a drone laden with fire-and-forget missiles.
Two years ago, the government sent a three-paragraph letter to the United Nations Security Council setting out the case for killing Cardiff extremist Reyaad Khan. Many fear that investigations by MPs on the decision-making process could be the start of mass extra-judicial killings.
