THEY HAVE TO GET LUCKY EVERY DAY:

IS said to execute 100 foreign fighters who wanted to quit (AFP, December 20, 2014)

IS fighters in Raqqa said the group has created a military police to clamp down on foreign fighters who do not report for duty. Dozens of homes have been raided and many jihadists have been arrested, the FT reported.

Some jihadists have become disillusioned with the realities of fighting in Syria, reports have said. [...]

Since a US-led coalition began a campaign of airstrikes against IS in August, the extremist group has lost ground to local forces and seen the number of its fighters killed rise significantly.
