Syria, yesterday, handed over a total of 146 Tajik nationals, who are family members of the Daesh militants, to their home country.

Zabidullah Zabidov, the ambassador of Tajikistan in Kuwait, was in Syria yesterday, to take the Tajik nationals, who had been accommodated in the al-Hol camp, in north-eastern Syria.

The al-Hol camp, which is run by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), is known to be housing refugees, largely family members of foreign Daesh militants.

Zabidov said that, the Tajik side had taken the necessary measures and arrangements for the return of Tajik citizens to their country.

He hailed the cooperation and support provided by the Syrian authorities, to secure the transportation of children and women, from the al-Hol camp to the Damascus International Airport, from where they would fly home.

The process took place in cooperation between the Syrian Foreign Ministry and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent.
