Syrian Kurds Call on Foreign Countries to Take Back ISIS Fighters

Abdulkarim Omer, the head of the Foreign Relations Commission in the Jazeera region on Sunday called on foreign countries to take back imprisoned foreign fighters, warning that the captured Islamic State (IS) extremists could flee.

“We confirm that we will not prosecute [IS] fighters in our region [Rojava, Northeastern Syria]. Every country should repatriate their citizens and prosecute them on their soil,” Omer said on his official Twitter account.

“Our region is unstable; any chaos may enable IS fighters to flee. Some of those fighters are dangerous and may pose serious threats [to] Europe and the international community,” he added.

The foreign affairs chief said there are nearly 900 foreign IS fighters in their custody, with 400 to 500 IS wives and 1,000 children from 44 foreign countries.
