Thank you for reading the news about France repatriates seven extremists’ children from Syria and now with the details
Jeddah – Yasmine El Tohamy – PARIS: France said on Wednesday it had brought home seven children of French extremists from northeast Syria, continuing a repatriation process begun after the toppling of Daesh’s so-called caliphate.
The children, aged between two and 11 and “particularly vulnerable,” were handed over to judicial authorities and taken into care by social services, the foreign ministry said.
They had been living in the Kurdish-run Roj and Al-Hol camps, where thousands of relatives of Daesh fighters and sympathizers have been held since the 2019 defeat of Daesh in Syria, a Kurdish source in the region told AFP.
France has so far repatriated 35 children, many of them orphans.
Rights groups have been pressuring European governments to allow children to return from the crowded camps to live with relatives.
Kurdish officials have also been pressuring countries to take back their citizens, warning that they do not have the resources to guard prisoners indefinitely.
France has insisted it will only take back children, with mothers to remain behind to face local justice, along with their husbands.
But many of the women have refused to be separated from their children.
