ISIS document leak purportedly reveals recruits’ identities, details

By Faith Karimi, Yousuf Basil and Atika Shubert, CNN
A batch of leaked ISIS documents purports to show secret details of foreign fighters, including their nationalities, previous jihadi experience and blood type.
A Syrian opposition newspaper published hundreds of documents this week that it said it got from an ISIS defector.
German intelligence officials said they are in possession of the documents, but did not provide details on how they got them.
Global recruitment
In the documents, ISIS claims it’s recruiting from many countries, including Syria, Iraq, Tunisia, Libya, France and Germany.
The documents are believed to be from a border crossing into ISIS territory in Syria, the newspaper said. They list 23 questions for would-be fighters including names, age, place of birth and experience. While some of the questions mirror a regular job application, others are tailored to the terrorist group.
One questions the recruits’ “level of obedience” while another one seeks their preference — a regular fighter or a suicide attacker?
Most of the would-be recruits’ entry dates are within 2013.
The questions
— First and last Name
— Assumed name
— Mother name
— Blood type
— Date of birth/ nationality
— Marital status
— Address and place of birth
— Education
— Sharia level
— Previous job
— Countries visited
— Point of border entry
–Date of entry
— Who recommended you
— Previous jihad experience
— Fighter or suicide attacker
— Field of specialty
— Current working place
— Personal properties you leaving behind
— The level of obedience
— Address for future communication
— Date of death and place
— Notes
Germany: Documents appear genuine
A spokesman for the German federal criminal police said the documents seem legit.
“We believe that it is very likely these are genuine documents,” Markus Koths said. “We are taking these into consideration of our law enforcement measures and security. “
