USA officials have estimated that 40,000 foreign fighters have flowed to Iraq and Syria to join the Islamic State and other groups since the conflict there began.

Deir Ezzor has been a key base for ISIS since the group first captured a majority of the city back in 2014. European governments and others have said that any of their nationals captured should be returned for trial at home.
