Tactics Institute spoke with Ramadan 'Dani' Ilazi for his experience in Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Radicalisation policy, as well as his Area Studies expertise.

Such weapons are known to make their way both to organised crime in Western Europe and militias in the Middle East. Given that the Paris attacks were mainly conducted with Balkan weapons, how alarmed should we be?
