This week, on September 13, the Syrian services announced the discovery of another Yazidi girl from among those abducted by the Islamic State (IS) in the infamous Syrian Al-Hol camp.

Sawsan Hassan Haidar, was abducted by IS members in 2014, when the terrorist group occupied the Yazidi district of Sinjar in northern Iraq. She was discovered during an operation with the participation of the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) to search for "sleeping cells" of ISIS in the Al-Hol camp.

Earlier, on August 3, it was reported about the discovery of 18-year-old Yazidi woman Wafai Ali Abbas during the first stage of the operation in the camp. She has now been reunited with her family. Wafai was abducted from the village of Kocho in 2014 during a bloody and treacherous ISIS attack on the Yazidis when she was just nine years old. She was one of more than 6,000 Yazidi women and girls who were abducted by the terrorist group ISIS. During her captivity, she was repeatedly sold, raped and enslaved. Both of her siblings are still missing, as are 2,700 other members of the Yazidi minority, whose whereabouts are still unknown. We were relieved to learn that even after eight years, the abductees still have hope of being released and returning home.

She was rescued in a massive operation to eradicate dormant ISIS cells in a camp known for housing tens of thousands of people still committed to the ideology of the so-called "ISIS". The camp is guarded and run by the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish military group. During the raid, explosives, weapons, ammunition and tunnels used by ISIS members to smuggle prohibited items in and out of the camp were discovered.

The tunnels confirm information that terrorists did leave the camps, commit crimes and acts of terrorism against nearby Yazidi settlements and return back to the camp. Whether the camp administration was aware of this and what was going on in the camp is not reported.  

The international community must reinvigorate and support the Yazidi self-defense units and intensify efforts to repatriate about 8,000 foreign nationals who left their countries to join ISIS and now find themselves in the Al-Hol camp. The discoveries made during the raid prove once again that the terrorist group has not been defeated and poses an active threat to peace and stability in the region.
