                La France a déclaré mercredi qu'elle avait ramené à la maison sept enfants de djihadistes français du nord-est de la Syrie, poursuivant un processus de rapatriement très sensible entamé après le renversement du califat autoproclamé du groupe État islamique (EI).

                                    <p>Les enfants, âgés de 2 à 11 ans et "particulièrement vulnérables", ont été remis aux autorités judiciaires et pris en charge par les services sociaux, a indiqué le ministère des Affaires étrangères.

They were living in the Kurdish-run al-Roj and al-Hol camps, where thousands of relatives of ISIS fighters and supporters have been held since ISIS’s defeat in Syria in 2019, a Kurdish source in the region told AFP.

France has so far repatriated 35 children, many of whom are orphans.

Rights groups have lobbied European governments to allow children to return from overcrowded camps to live with relatives.

Les responsables kurdes ont également fait pression sur les pays pour qu'ils reprennent leurs citoyens, avertissant qu'ils n'ont pas les ressources nécessaires pour garder les prisonniers indéfiniment.

According to the CAT terrorism analysis center, 13 French jihadists including Hayat Boumedienne, the partner of one of the three men who carried out deadly terrorist attacks in Paris in January 2015, escaped to Syria.

France insisted on the fact that it would take back only the children, the mothers having to stay to face the local justice, with their husbands.

But many women refused to be separated from their children.
