90 more families leave the Hol Camp

As part of a reintegration program negotiated between the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria and tribal elders, more than six thousand Syrian citizens have so far left the Hol Camp.

Due to the extreme humanitarian emergency in the camp and corresponding demands by the local tribes, the Autonomous Administration decided in October to release all Syrian nationals from the camp under a general amnesty. Leaving the camp is voluntary, because many inhabitants do not know where to go. Since then five groups have left the camp, in addition to a 354-member group made up of 90 families from Deir ez-Zor that has left today.

The camp management stated that more families are applying to leave the camp, including those from Raqqa.

Those families leaving the camp are secured by Internal Security Forces on their way to their destinations.
