ISIS havoc burdens officials at over-crowded camp in Syria
[Rudaw] Despite the territorial defeat of the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
in eastern Syrian in March, officials must continue to deal with the group’s reign of terror in al-Hol detention camp, where more than 73,000 people are living. In particular, the fate of imported muscle’ wives and children remains an international concern.

The majority arrived in early 2019 as Kurdish forces closed in on the last Islamic State (ISIS) holdout of Baghouz putting camp infrastructure under significant strain. According to UN figures, the camp population consists of Iraqis (43%), Syrians (42%) and third-country nationals (15%).

Those not from Iraq and Syria present problems for camp and local officials as repatriation varies greatly by their country of origin. It is further complicated by the fact that 91 percent of the camp’s residents are women and kiddies, 65 percent are under age 12, and 20,000 are children under the age of 5.

On June 2, Norway announced the repatriation of five children from Syria. Their Oslo-bound flight left Erbil on Monday.

some 3,000 children are unaccompanied or separated from their families and around 11,000 children haven’t attended school since the ISIS conflict began in 2014.
