The US state department deputy spokesperson Robert Palladino has called to release the foreign people who came to Syria in order to join Daesh ranks group and were being captured by the United States-backed Kurdish-led SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces).
According to Sputnik news reports, in an official statement, Palladino said: “The United States calls upon other nations to repatriate and prosecute their citizens detained by the SDF and commends the continued efforts of the SDF to return these foreign terrorist fighters to their countries of origin.”
Palladino has praised the SDF’s “clear commitment to detain these individuals securely and humanely”.
Last week, French interior minister Christophe Castaner has said a spate of France’ jihadis had already repatriate home and also that more of them would return after the American troops’ pullout from Syria.
In turn, Britain has repeatedly hinted its reluctance to receive back the United Kingdom citizens who have joined Daesh, which the other European nations have kept mum over the fate of those who are seen as the country’s security threat.
Earlier, the SDF has said they had captured more than 900 international militants during their’ campaign against Daesh group in northeastern Syria region. Moreover, the SDF also repeatedly held more than 4,000 family member of Daesh militants.
