“The US has repatriated 11 of its citizens and six Canadian children from camps in north-eastern Syria, the state department announced. Ten of the US citizens are reportedly members of a single family. The six Canadians are all children. Four Dutch citizens and a Finnish citizen were also repatriated by the state department, it says. About 30,000 people from 60 countries – most of them children – remain stranded in two overcrowded camps in Syria. The camps, Al-Hol and Roj, are run by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which battled the Islamic State group for years until the fall of its so-called caliphate in early 2019. In a statement on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said it was the single largest repatriation of American citizens from camps in Syria to date.” (05/07/24)
