Reliable sources have informed SOHR that an official Iraqi delegation arrived in areas under the control of Autonomous-Administration in north and north-east of Syria during the past hours for new discussions and developing a coordination mechanism to repatriate more Iraqi refugees in Al-Hawl camp in the southeastern countryside of Al-Hasakah.
According to Syrian Observatory sources, the delegation has not yet arrived at Al-Hawl camp.
It is worth noting that the last period saw the repatriation of hundreds of Iraqis in coordination between the Autonomous Administration and the Iraqi Government.
On January 28, the administration of Al-Hawl camp in Al-Hasakah countryside began the repatriation process of 123 Iraqi families, including nearly 490 persons.
This process came after coordination between Autonomous Administration, SDF, and an Iraqi government delegation. The Iraqi families were scheduled to be transferred to Iraq in the coming hours that day.
We, at the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), renew our appeal to the international community to find a lasting solution to “Al-Hawl mini-state” crisis, which is considered a clear and present danger to everyone. We also urge international human rights organisations to put an immediate and serious plan for rehabilitating women and children in the camp, who were saturated with ISIS ideology, especially with the large number of children and the widespread presence of the group cells in the camp that continue to impart their poisonous ideas to the residents of the camp, particularly women and children.
