Up to 5,000 Daesh and their families remain in the Daesh-held pocket near the Syrian town of Bahuz in the Euphrates Valley, according to the SDF, who told AFP that more than 66,000 people, mostly civilians, have quit the Daesh-held area since Jan 9. They include 37,000 civilians, 5,000 terrorists and around 24,000 of their relatives. 520 Daesh have been captured in SDF operations. The ‘Daesh’ and ‘civilians’ captured by the SDF are being moved towards SDF-run camps in north-eastern Syria. The main camp of this type is located in Al-Hol. According to reports, about 70,000 people, including Daesh-linked persons, are located there. Even the MSM are forced to admit dire humanitarian condictions and a lack of security in these camps. More than 123 people, including many children, have died on the way or shortly after arriving at Al-Hol, according to the International Rescue Committee.
