Syrian President Bashar Assad said Wednesday terrorism will strike back against the West and other countries that "supported" attacks in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East, as the U.K. and Germany warned of the threat of returning jihadis.British premier David Cameron warned that militants making advances in Iraq and fighting in Syria were planning to attack Britain."The people in that regime, as well as trying to take territory, are also planning to attack us here at home in the United Kingdom".He was speaking before chairing a meeting of the government's National Security Council on the militant offensive in Iraq, which is being spearheaded by jihadists from the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS).Jihadists returning from Syria are no longer an "abstract threat" but a "deadly danger" to Europe, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said Wednesday.
