Three ISIS orphans handed over to Nigeria
This is the first time an African country has developed a measure to take back children born into ISIS.
Officials from the Federation of North and East Syria handed over three children born into ISIS to Nigerian government officials. The three siblings, a girl and two boys, are aged between 5 and 10. They are reported to have lost their mother and father.
An official from the Nigerian government stated that they were also examining the possible return of other children with Nigerian roots.
According to the Federation of North and East Syria, there are as many as 12,000 foreigners currently staying in the camps built in the region. These include 4 thousand are women and 8 thousand children from 30 to 40 countries. Separately, hundreds of foreign mercenaries are under arrest in northeast Syria.
The Federation has repeatedly called upon foreign countries, Europe in the first place, to take back their citizens who were engaged in ISIS. Another call of the Federation is the establishment of an international court in the region to put the criminal terrorists on trial.
