The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces transferred more than 800 civilians, including families of Islamic State fighters, from Baghuz to al-Hol refugee camp on the outskirts of Hasakah, North Deir Ezzor, on February 23, according to local reports. The United Nations said that the camp was at maximum capacity, with some 41,000 people living there, Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, said on February 21. Dujarric added that at least 61 children died on the journey and shortly after arriving at the camp. The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the humanitarian conditions in the camp were “tragic.” The Kurdish outlet ANHA posted this footage, described as showing women and children arriving to al-Hol camp.
