Women and children have a chance to return to normal life.
At least 50 captured “Islamic State” ✱ (IS, banned in the Russian Federation) militants were repatriated to Iraq.
Together with them, 168 terrorist family members were transferred to the neighboring republic. They depart from the al-Khol camp to Al-Ceda, south of Mosul.
The women and children will undergo a psychiatric examination, and then their fate will be decided.
“They will be sent home as soon as they receive assurances from tribal leaders that they will not face retaliation,” an Iraqi security source said.
Official Baghdad representatives promised that 50 ISIS militants would face justice after the investigation.
The people living in the Al-Khol camp are in extremely difficult conditions: an unfavorable humanitarian and criminogenic situation has been developing on the territory of the camp since its foundation. Its territory is controlled by pro-American Kurdish groups from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which illegally hold large swaths of the Arab Republic.
