(Zaman Al Wasl)- Six Danish jihadists out of the 9 who were mentioned in Zaman al-Wasl's documents over ISIS personal data have been detained in Denmark two weeks ago.

Zaman al-Wasl investigated the detainees’ data in the registration forms and it found that one of the important fighters who facilitated detention of other three, is mentioned in the Isis archive owned by the newspaper.

Danish Police announced on 7 April detention of 4 Isis recruits in Copenhagen suburbs under charges of joining Isis.

The police said the detainees owned weapons and munitions without disclosing any name.

 The Danish Ministry of Interior said the detainees were connected with a criminal gang in Copenhagen.

Zaman al-Wasl knew that Danish Security is trying to obtain documents related to most dangerous two Danish citizenship holders.

One of them is of Syrian origin, The second person is a suspect of a terrorist attack that it was planned to happen in Denmark. It is strongly believed this person has planned a bomb attack on a school in Denmark. His plan was foiled by US Army Capt. Bradley Grimm.

Later, Denmark has rewarded Grimm with Danish Defense Medal for his distinguished efforts in saving Danish people.

Danish authorities estimate the numbers of Isis joiners to be more than 125 persons; 27 of them were killed whereas 62 returned to Denmark, these are either Danish citizenship holders or of Danish origins.

Denmark is considered among Isis targeted countries. Two were killed and several injured in a terrorist attack in Copenhagen in 2015. 9 months later, Danish authorities evacuated a building in Kastrup Airport in the capital due to security suspect of one baggage.

Danish security caution and preparedness increased after the Paris attacks on 13 November 2015 where 130 were killed.

Danish caution reflects fear of infiltration of Paris attack planners to Denmark and Isis agents planning for similar attacks. The fears escalated following Brussel attacks in March. It was later revealed some who planned Paris attack executed Brussel attacks. Thus, European security and intelligence seem to fall short of stopping Isis regardless of obstacles and tough security procedures.

The threat on the Danish is not only inside Denmark. A group of Isis supporters published a footage showing gunshots on a Danish citizen residing in Saudi Arabia.

The speedy events and increasing what Copenhagen see as terrorist threats led Denmark to more involvement in the International Coalition fight against Isis. The parliament approved in majority a plan to send 400 soldiers and 8 aircraft to participate in combat operations against Isis in Syria and Iraq.
