Foreign militants fighting in the ongoing extremist-marked war in Syria and al-Qaeda-led war in neighboring Iraq have threatened to target their own governments after they are done with Syria.

Videos posted online by the terrorist multi-national group of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) shows foreign militants ripping their passports and burning them to display their commitment to what they call “the holy war.”

In the footage, a man who claims to be Canadian says the militants are determined to destroy Western and Arab tyrants after accomplishing their mission in the Middle East.

Many of the passports tossed into the flames have grass-green covers similar to those issued in Saudi Arabia.

The video clips have been professionally recorded probably somewhere in northern or eastern Syria.

Thousands of foreigners, mainly from Arab and European countries, are said to be operating against the Syrian government.

Western spy agencies have already warned that the foreign militants pose a potential security threat when they return home.

According to reports, Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside Syria, which has been gripped by turmoil for more than three years.
