In another return campaign, the federal government brought suspected IS supporters and their children from the Roj prison camp in north-eastern Syria to Germany. As Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens) announced, there are four women, seven children and a young man who was taken to Syria when he was 11 years old. The women and the man were arrested immediately after their arrival. They should now be held accountable for their actions.
According to the Federal Foreign Office, children can only be brought back with the consent and simultaneous return of the mothers. There is currently only one case in which approval has been given, but the retrieval has not yet been implemented. In other cases, the mothers did not want a repatriation at the moment.
