Germany is one of various Western states that are concerned about citizens, often with Islamic immigrant backgrounds, joining jihadist insurgencies and have cracked down to reduce the risk of returning fighters posing a security threat at home.
Commenting on the interview, Defence Ministry spokesman Ingo Gerhartz said 20 ex-soldiers fighting with Islamic State should be seen in the context of "about 25,000-30,000 part-time and full-time soldiers who leave the armed forces each year". However, he added, "each case is one too many".
