NES Internal Security Forces foil attempt to smuggle 17 women and 39 children out of al-Hol camp
An attempt to smuggle 17 women and 39 children out of al-Hol camp was foiled on Tuesday.
An attempt to smuggle 17 women and 39 children out of al-Hol camp on Tuesday was prevented after the Internal Security Forces of NES (Asayish) intercepted the truck carrying the escapees. The people are said to be members of ISIS families.
Camp officials have recently stated that they anticipate larger external attack attempts from ISIS cells and have called for more international support in managing the camp, particularly with regards to the repatriation of international detainees.
Al-Hol camp is continually plagued by escape attempts. Last year, Asayish confirmed to RIC that most camp escapees were attempting to reach Turkish-occupied Serekaniye.
