200 displaced Syrians leave overcrowded camp

Qamishli: Around 200 Syrian displaced people, mostly women and children, were heading home from an overcrowded desert camp in the northeast of the war-torn country on Sunday, a Kurdish official said.
Syria’s Kurds, after years of fighting the Islamic State group, are holding tens of thousands of civilians and IS relatives in camps for the displaced.
In June, they started sending home Syrian families that had fled their homes during battles against the jihadists from the overpopulated camp of Al-Hol. “Most are women and children, with just some men,” said Sheikhmous Ahmad, a Kurdish official in charge of the displaced. (AFP)
