Human Rights Western governments for ignoring Syria camp crisis

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has criticized Western governments for failing to fulfil their responsibility to the thousands of detained people linked to Daesh in northeast Syria.

Some 43,000 foreign men, women and children remain detained in what HRW call “inhuman or degrading conditions” by authorities in the autonomous Kurdish northeast of the country.

The prisoners were captured and placed in these camps after the fall of Daesh’s last territorial outpost.
