Thirteen Australian residents appeared in a massive cache of Islamic State registration documents leaked to news organisations last month, according to a US army college analysis.
The figure, published by the Combating Terrorism Centre at West Point, is six more Australians than has been previously reported.
Thousands of apparent Isis registration documents were published by a Syrian opposition site in January and then more leaked in March to the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung.
They listed 23 biographical details about fighters including their names, birthdates, blood types, “levels of obedience” and whether they intended to become suicide bombers.
It found a significant number of the fighters said they had college educations but most had only been employed in low-skilled jobs, suggesting some “may have been motivated by frustration over failure to achieve expected success in the job market following their education”.
