Wives and children of ISIL fighters return home from al-Hol camp

Families are looking forward to restarting their lives in Raqqa, their hometown and what was effectively ISIL’s capital city before its defeat.

In Syria, hundreds of wives and children of suspected fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) are heading home from an overcrowded camp in the northeast.

Concerns have been raised that relatives of the ISIL fighters may promote the group’s ideology when they return home.

Kurdish leaders say some will be monitored as they reintegrate into daily life.
