The Red Cross urges countries to take back their citizens held in Syrian camps



The Red Cross urges countries to take back their citizens held in Syrian camps

 

The International Committee of the Red Cross said on Friday that countries must take back 62,000 people, two-thirds of whom are children, who are being held in miserable camps in northeastern Syria, who are believed to be the families of ISIS militants.

 

Those detained in the Al-Hol camp for displaced people, run by Syrian Kurdish forces, hail from about 60 countries. They fled from the last pockets of the terrorist organization ISIS, and most of them were Iraqis or Syrians.

 

"Tens of thousands of children trapped in Al-Hol camp and other camps and detained in prisons are victims. They are victims no matter what they may have done," said Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross, in a statement after visiting the vast camp, where the committee runs a field hospital and distributes food and water. Or their parents, or whatever they are accused of. "

 

He added that the children, many of them orphans or separated from their parents, always grow up in dangerous conditions in the camp. The United Nations said in January that it had received reports that 12 Syrians and Iraqis had been killed there.

 

Maurer urged the authorities to put an end to "the tragedy in public view," adding "there are positive examples of the recovery and reintegration of individuals."

 

Some countries refused to take back their citizens, either for security reasons, or sought to strip them of their nationality.

 

Maurer concluded a five-day visit to Syria that also included Hasaka and Daraya, outside Damascus, and held ministerial-level talks in the capital.
