Children of refugees or arrested Daesh members in the al-Hol camp in Syria were trained by PKK-linked terrorists for armed conflicts and given weapons by the terrorist group, and were even put in the front lines of fire against the Turkish-backed Syrian opposition, a former detainee who escaped the camp has revealed.
The Uzbek woman, who was identified only by her initials as D.S., said that those children were forcefully transferred to Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring area to be used as civilian shields against the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK)-backed Syrian National Army (SNA).
The woman lived in Dubai, Denmark and Istanbul before joining the Daesh terrorist group with her husband S.S. She was taken to the al-Hol camp in Syria’s Hasakah by the PKK terrorist organization’s Syrian affiliate the People’s Protection Units ( YPG) after her husband was killed in airstrikes in Deir el-Zour.
The former Daesh member then escaped the camp in October, and was detained by Turkish security forces while trying to illegally cross the border after giving money to a smuggler.
The Daesh-linked detainee told Anadolu Agency that many Daesh members and their families including over 20,000 women and children from Syria, Iraq, Chechnya, Dagestan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Tunisia, Algeria, Albania, Kazakhstan and several other European countries like France were living there during her time at the camp. She added that some of the detainees were taken back by their native countries.
The woman said that the terrorists were giving arms training to children as young as 10 years old, and some were even taken to the frontlines of fire against the TSK-backed SNA.
