Some 800 people, mostly women and children, have been released from the Al-Hawl camp in northern Syria on Monday.
The camp, situated on the outskirts of the town Al-Hawl in Al-Hasakah Governorate, hosts individuals displaced from territories formerly controlled by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS).
According to reports, the camp is a home to at least 73,000 people... Еще, including many IS family members and about 10,000 foreigners from over 40 countries.
Monday's release comes after a meeting between Kurdish authorities and Arab tribal leaders last month. It is believed to be the first in a string of mass releases that are to take place in the upcoming weeks. More IS family members are expected to be released following Eid celebrations.
