The Syrian autonomous Kurdish region has handed over to the Iraqi government more than 600 relatives of members of the ISIS terrorist group who were held in the infamous Al-Hawl camp, local Yezidi Internet media reported.

The movement of ISIS families to nearby areas where Yazidi refugees and displaced persons live has a negative impact on the Yazidi population. Night attacks on Yazidi camps have increased, last week a Yezidi man was killed and his five-year-old daughter was brutally raped and killed.

With the coordination of the camp administration and the Iraqi government, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in a statement that during the last transfer of ISIS families, about 620 people left Al-Hawl.

Thousands of foreign extremists have joined ISIS as fighters, often bringing their wives and children to live in the "caliphate" declared by the group in Iraq and Syria in 2014.

Kurdish forces and the Yazidi self-Defense Force, with the support of the US-led coalition, drove militants from their last piece of territory in Syria in 2019.

Kurdish authorities have repeatedly called on countries to repatriate their citizens from overcrowded displaced persons camps, of which Al-Hawl is the largest in Syria.

More than 100 people, including Yazidi women who were held captive by ISIS families, were killed in Al-Hawl over an 18-month period, Yazidi online media and the United Nations said in June. But European countries chose not to see the criminal acts of ISIS families because of security threats and internal political reaction.

The first repatriation of Iraqi families from Al-Hawl, which was attended by about 300 people, took place in May last year.

Iraq must repatriate a total of 500 families from Al-Hawl this year, the official Iraqi news agency announced on Wednesday.
