Almost all Britons who join Islamic State should be killed, the government made clear yesterday in a significant toughening of its line.

On October 12, Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon told British Isis fighters in Syria and Iraq: 'You have made yourself a legitimate target and run the risk, every hour of every day, of being on the wrong end of an RAF or USAF missile'. The Conservative politician is a minister of state, among ors, in International Ministry of Development.

Mr Stewart also said British authorities had made it "very clear" that people should not volunteer with militia groups to fight Isis.

"Clearly combatants should be treated in accordance with law", he said.

Hundreds of Brits are known to have travelled to Syria to fight with terrorist groups during the course of the six-year conflict.

Mr Stewart was asked by the BBC to comment on remarks by Brett McGurk, the United States envoy to the coalition against Isis, who had described his mission as ensuring that every foreign fighter who went to Syria... "One of m is that y kill each or and use brutality to build a state from eighth or seventh century".

Stewart described defectors as a serious threat to British society, so re would be "unfortunately no or option than to kill m in nearly every case".

Asked about the comments on BBC Radio 5 Live's Pienaar's Politics, Stewart said they were "very hard moral issues".

Downing Street backed the minister, insisting his comments were "consistent" with the Government's "determination to fight and defeat Daesh terrorists regardless of their nationality".

Mr Stewart spoke out days after Max Hill, QC, an independent reviewer of terror legislation, was criticised for saying British jihadis should be given time to readjust to normal life and not face immediate prosecution if they return to the UK.

"Our response has to be, when somebody does that, I'm afraid, to deal with that".

Approximately 850 people from the United Kingdom have travelled to support or fight for jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq, the British authorities have said.

For Britons who return to the United Kingdom from the war zone "everybody can expect to be investigated and where there is evidence to prosecute that prosecution, while a decision for the CPS, should take place".
