End Unlawful Detention In the news

Families of British women and children held in Syrian camps fear for their safety in counter-terror raids

The sister of a British woman detained in a Kurdish-run detention camp in North East Syria says she fears for sister and her children amid a deteriorating security situation, which this week prompted the Biden administration to call on governments to repatriate their citizens.

“My sister and her children are terrified. The situation in the camps is getting increasingly dangerous and volatile,” the British woman told The Telegraph in a message passed by Reprieve, a legal NGO which works with families detained in Syria. 

Reprieve says the women they work with do not support Islamic State, and many were trafficked or coerced into Syria, including some while children. Reprieve says the families cannot be identified for legal reasons.
