173 Iraqi families leave the Hol Camp

As a result of co-operation between the Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) and the Iraqi government, 173 Iraqi families left the Hol Camp.

A large number of refugees consisting of families from Iraq have left the Hol Camp as part of the ongoing coordination between the Hol Camp Administration, the Security Committee and the Committee on Migration and Migrants of the Iraqi House of Representatives.

Accompanied by security forces, 173 Iraqi families left Syria to settle in camps in Iraq. 659 people, including women, children and men, were in possession of Iraqi identity documents.

The group will settle in the Jeda Camp in Mosul province of Iraq.

Around 50,000 people are currently housed in Hol camp near Hesekê. Most come from Syria and Iraq, others from Europe, the Caucasus, North Africa and the Middle and Far East. About half are minors, many of the children are under twelve years old and are indoctrinated in Islamist ideology. This makes camp one of the most dangerous places in the world. Roj camp currently houses around 2,300 ISIS women and their children.
