The "Autonomous Administration of Northern and Eastern Syria" (AANES) is reluctantly helping to rescue abducted Yezidis held among tens of thousands of imprisoned members of the ISIS terrorist group in the Al-Khol camp in Syrian Kurdistan.

The infamous camp in Hasaka province is home to more than 60,000 IS fighters and their family members, including almost 12,000 foreign nationals. They say that among them there are also captured Yezidis who were previously abducted by ISIS.

Hussein Kaedi, head of the Kurdistan Region Department for abducted Yezidis, said that the authorities of Syrian Kurdistan and international partners are useless in rescuing Yezidis from Al-Khol.

"We have repeatedly sent Yazidi delegations to Rojava, but they were escorted back empty—handed," Kaedi added.

According to the official, so far more than 3,550 Yazidis, including men, women and children, have been rescued, but about 2,700 more people are still missing.

He also said that the Department for Abducted Yezidis has received information about abducted Yezidis in Iraq, Syria and other countries, and it will continue its efforts until the last abducted Yezidis is finally released.

Kaedi also criticized the Iraqi federal government for refusing to help with rescue operations, saying that his office's request was rejected every time they applied to Baghdad since 2015.

"The rescue of the Yezidis is a humanitarian issue and has absolutely nothing to do with politics. All parties should help find the remaining abductees," the official added.
