Some 25 Kosovo Albanian women and children, relatives of so-called Islamic State fighters, have escaped from camps in Syria since Turkey launched its military incursion, said an organisation involved in trying to bring militants’ family members home.

Bedri Elezi, director for security studies at the Kosovo Institute for International Studies, who has been helping to repatriate ethnic Albanian relatives of so-called Islamic State fighters from the Middle East conflict zone, told BIRN on Tuesday that around 25 women and children have escaped from the Al-Hawl and Ein Issa camps in northern Syria.

“For the moment they are at the border with Turkey, hoping to cross over and finally come home,” Elezi said.
