(Middle East Online / Worthy News)– Leaders of the Group of Seven industrialized nations decided Thursday to tighten defenses against the risk of terror attacks by European jihadists returning from the Syrian front.

“We have agreed to intensify efforts to address the issue of foreign fighters travelling to and from Syria,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said at the close of a G7 summit.

Europe can expect further “small-scale attacks” like the Brussels shooting, the EU’s anti-terror chief Gilles de Kerchove said this week.

“I don’t expect another 9/11,” he said. “I don’t expect a major sophisticated attack.”

But with more than 2,000 Europeans in Syria or on their way there, receiving military training and becoming more radicalized, the Brussels attack was “very, very worrying” for Europe’s future security, he said.

Around 400 British nationals, 320 Germans and 200 Belgians are believed to have left for Syria.
