Government brings IS-woman back to Germany for the first time


AThis weekend, for the first time with the support of the Federal Government, a woman is to return to Germany, which had emigrated to the territory of the terrorist militia Islamic State (IS). So far, Germany had only helped with the exodus of children from Syrian prison camps. The Foreign Ministry said: "We can confirm that today three other German children, who were in custody in northern Syria, were able to travel from there to Iraq with their mother."

According to dpa information, the family who last lived in the camp Al-Hol should come back to Germany on Saturday. According to the information is being investigated against the woman in Germany. She has, in addition to her own children, a two-year-old girl with American nationality in her care, which probably does not come to Germany. The organization of emigration to Iraq is said to have involved a former American diplomat.

With regard to women who want to return from prison camps in Syria, the Federal Government had recently declared that they would look at each individual case. In August, three orphans and a seriously ill child from IS families were brought to Germany via Iraq.

Netherlands do not have to bring back

In recent weeks, there have been two court decisions of the Higher Administrative Court Berlin-Brandenburg on IS returnees. In both cases, the federal government was asked to bring women who live in a Kurd-controlled camp in Syria together with their children to Germany. In its reasoning, the court stated that the children were traumatized and dependent on caring for the mother. For its part, the Foreign Office had asserted security concerns.
